Description: Lead the implementation of common technology across government, and by doing so enable civil service transformation and realise better value on IT spend in government. The programme was reset in March 2017 and is now focussed around three core areas: 1. Developing a common approach to common technology: patterns and standards for core technology components, developed in partnership with Departments. 2. Technology delivery to Government Hubs: supporting Government Property Agency with delivery of shared networking infrastructure to the Canary Wharf Hub, including producing a design pattern for future hubs. 3. Networks for government: including operation of the current Public Services Network (PSN) serving over 700 organisations, delivery of Government's future networking approach and helping organisations transition away from existing PSN services which are reaching end of life.
