(familiar) challenges facing local government digital •Budget reductions, rationing, channel shift, managing demand •Lack of Leadership •Service managers not engaged •Lack of focus on the customer •Diminished in-house capacity •Inflexible supplier arrangements/vender lock in •Difficulty of engaging suppliers, existing and new with the new agenda •Complex joint working arrangements – health, police, other councils, private sector suppliers, community organisations 6

In our new localist world, so what? •It’s all “government” - the public (understandably) don’t understand the complex delivery landscape • Delivery of many central and local services mutually dependent •Councils are key providers of Assisted Digital and Digital Inclusion •Councils are key parts of the local digital economy; and big buyers of digital services •Demand in local government to learn more about GDS, GOV.UK •For little effort we can help accelerate the pace of digital transformation 7

Under development - Central Links Discovery days – to engage local government with central government transformation and to identify blockers where central government can help local digital transformation Hot Topics – develop digital role for Heads of Service in local government.

Local Digital Campaign •Campaign: Working with UKAuthority to amplify our messages to local government and the wider sector. Dedicated media channel to promote development of excellent local digital services and promote the activities of all members of the fledgling Local Government Digital Alliance •Audience: The Campaign will engage chief executives, senior management and digital leads across the UK’s 433 councils – including heads of customer service, transformation and the major service heads, finance and procurement, technology and digital teams. Police, fire, health and related central government teams will also be invited to participate. •Government/Supplier partnership: The campaign is funded through DCLG resource and matched funding from the supplier community. A specific aim is to create a representative but ‘vendor neutral’ space by engaging with ten of the large and ten SME key players in the sector 11
