Government Digital Service

The Government Digital Service (GDS) is leading the digital transformation of government.

GDS was established in response to Martha Lane Fox’s report, ‘Directgov 2010 and beyond: revolution not evolution’ (download the PDF, 2.7MB), and is here to ensure the Government offers world-class digital products that meet people’s needs.

GDS works in three core areas:

  • transforming 25 high volume key exemplars from across government into digital services
  • building and maintaining the consolidated GOV.UK website –  which brings government services together in one place
  • changing the way government procures IT services
