Whitehall departments are under pressure as never before, faced with shrinking budgets, economic uncertainty and growing demand for public services.
In response, ministers and officials have started generated innovative solutions, and some departments are merging, others are driving forward shared services – but further spending cuts and economic challenges loom.
Our consultants have been working in a number of departments including the Home Office, Department for Transport, DWP, HMRC and DEFRA. We have led a number of Change Programmes within Central Government, including the College of Policing Change Portfolio funded by the Home Office.
DigitalFirst is able to provide shared service expertise and has been working closely with the Cabinet Office in this area; we have also in a number of cases provided commercial advice.
