Technical standards

Common technical standards will provide a set of criteria to help organisations design, build and buy technology.

We will be working with practitioners delivering public services across to identify, design and share technical standards to be used for all technology projects or programmes. This will help us all to use technology that meets user need, is easy to share and maintain, can be scaled for future use and provides value for money. We will also develop guidance and case studies to help organisations implement those standards and share learning and good practice.

The Government Digital Service (GDS) Technology Code of Practice provides an example of what organisations should consider for all projects and programmes.

If you’ve got ideas to share or want to be involved then please get in touch.
