The government's Service Transformation Board has been transformed into the Delivery Council.
The move, by new government CIO John Suffolk, is an attempt to speed the restructure of government departments and quicken the delivery of new government services.
The government published its Transformational Government strategy last November, and the creation of the Service Transformation Board was one of the key features in the strategy.
The Service Transformation Board had the responsibility to set operational strategies and establish policy frameworks across central government.
The newly established Delivery Council mirrors the CIO council but it contains all the key civil servants from across government departments who are responsible for the government’s major service delivery programmes.
The Delivery Council has already met for the first time.
