The UK might be an island nation but it does not develop its ICT Strategy in a vacuum.

Developing secure electronic networks, agreed data protocols and common information frameworks with other EU member states ensures more effective delivery of public services across Europe without duplicating ICT solutions.

Our engagement goes beyond Europe and reaches out to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the International Council for Information Technology in Government Administration (ICA) and the 5 Nations CIO Group, where we can share knowledge and best practice.
