How we developed the standard

Over 60 councils have input into the Standard so far

Following visits to the Government Digital Service (GDS) to see a Digital by Default Service Assessment we ran a workshop with GDS which representatives from 31 councils attended, a public consultation to which many more responded to, and our Standard Steering Group met on 6 April 2016 to agree the current version.

The Standard Steering Group currently consists of:

  • Amanda Wilde – East Riding of Yorkshire Council
  • Andrew Whittaker – North Yorkshire County Council
  • Ben Cheetham – Guildford Borough Council
  • Dale Shepherd – Shropshire Council
  • Joshua Mouldey – London Borough of Camden
  • Julia McGinley – Coventry City Council
  • Luke Smith – Bristol City Council
  • Mathew Cain – Buckinghamshire County Council
  • Neil Lawrence – Oxford City Council
  • Phil Rumens – West Berkshire Council
  • Steve Langrick – Kirkless Council
