Digital technologies are transforming the way public services are delivered and the way in which citizen’s interact with them. The Scottish Government has a key role through its digital strategy in enabling central government organisations to innovate and use digital technology to improve services.
Audit Scotland is carrying out the first in a series of audits looking at the progress the Scottish Government is making in enabling and building a digital government.
This audit will provide an update from our previous reports, assessing the Scottish Government’s progress in delivering against its digital ambitions across central government. This will include examining progress against its digital strategy, the impact of new assurance arrangements, and where possible, a comparison of the Scottish Government’s approach and progress with other countries.
We aim to publish our report in summer 2019. Following publication, the Auditor General, Caroline Gardner, will present findings to the Scottish Parliament’s Public Audit and Post Legislative Scrutiny Committee.
