Public Service Networks (PSNs) are the first
and most important building block in the process of reducing
back-office ICT costs in the public sector, and they are a critical
foundation for creating better connected, collaborative government
shared service delivery. Without local, regional and national PSNs,
the public sector will struggle to deliver the efficiencies and
savings it simply has to find. And without joined up collaborative
networks, policy makers and politicians will be unable to join up
front-line services and achieve the more effective service delivery
outcomes the public now demands.
Over the past few years, PSN has been driven
as a programme from the Cabinet Office, but PSNs in National
Devolved Governments and in a small number of English counties have
already been built, starting locally and expanding regionally,
servicing the needs of individual and communities of organisations
and delivering on local and regional ICT strategies as well as
front-line service priorities.
