Weekly update & final report - 26 April 2019

Following the discovery phase activity wrap up, the main focus of our final week has been on tying up discovery conclusions.

The activities covered this week include:

Holding a service assessment

On Thursday afternoon, the team gathered at City Hall to take the discovery phase through a service assessment with an external panel, assessing against the Local Government Digital Service Standard.

Following the assessment, it was announced that the phase has met each applicable point of the service standard, successfully passing the assessment. A huge thank you to David Durant and Martin Chaney from Greater London Authority and Jacob Bonwitt from Government Digital Service, as the assessment panel, for their time and input.

Publishing the discovery report

Following the service assessment, the team has published the discovery report online.

With the discovery phase concluded, the next step is for the Southwark Council team to submit their bid to the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) Local Digital Fund for progressing through to alpha phase.

Watch this space.

Thanks,

Jack, Boris, Celia, Graeme, Martyn, Paul and Wing.
