Actions completed include the introduction of centrally co-ordinated supplier management, the publication of a new Whitehall model for shared services and launching a new front page for Data.gov.uk aimed specifically at the general public.
Ongoing work includes the creation of "Transparency and Open Data Sector Panels", designed to support and challenge departments in opening their data holdings and embedding transparency, due to be completed by the end of April 2012. The department said it is also in the process of amending the Freedom of Information Code of Practice to extend the "right to data" to public authorities by the end of July 2012.
The Cabinet Office recently published data on the number of central government websites, information originally intended to be published in May.
