iNetwork aims to improve troubled families data
A KEY iNetwork programme has been awarded £50,000 to tackle the challenge of information standards, particularly relating to troubled families.
The Cabinet Office’s Open Data User Group made the award last week to the Local eGovernment Standards Body (LeGSB) following a submission by iNetwork. LeGSB (www.legsb.gov.uk), which iNetwork has hosted since 2006, plays an important role in defining and promoting information standards in the public sector.
Designing a radically different public sector
This week colleagues from six councils plus partner organisations commenced a learning journey aimed at fundamentally rethinking how they deliver services. The six had successfully submitted proposals to be part of the joint iNetwork and Design Council “Design in Public Services” programme. The programme is intensively training a cohort of local public service colleagues in design techniques and initially apply these techniques, with support, over a 90 day period.
