PSN - The Stated Benefits PSN Benefits Interoperability Enable a versatile and flexible private network offering interoperability Allowing users to share information and access open standard-based services Seamless Connectivity Users linked through a network of networks governed by standards Users will be capable of accessing a range of business and network services where and when they are needed, with security and integrity guaranteed Cheaper Help make substantial savings of up to £500m a year Support HMG Strategic Objectives in Transformational Government, Operational Efficiency Programme (OEP), Digital Britain etc Transformation Underpin and enable key elements of the Government ICT Strategy and transform cross-boundary working Service Assurance Enhance the benefits of a multi- supplier environment, by providing the assurance and reliability of a single supplier Create the tools necessary for end to end service assurance Open Market Place Reduce the cost and complexity of procurement by creating an innovative open market place Offer competitively priced services
Potential Benefits Supporting Total Place Bringing together multiple organisations together in one place to deliver services Using a single communications infrastructure Using standard equipment and services Delivering services locally Delivering services that the citizen wants where they want it
Potential Benefits (2) Cheaper services Reducing the number of expensive circuits and other network related services used to deliver services Standardising on procurement contracts Using local knowledge to keep costs down Enhancing the purchasing power of the many
Potential Benefits (3) Enabling organisations to work together Combining Information Assurance policies Standardising ICT infrastructure services Dismantling silos by removing the technology excuse Making it easier to access services across all tiers
The Benefits in Action Kent Public Service Network (KPSN)
Supporting Shared Services (Interoperability, Cheaper, Transformation) Kent Public Service Network (KPSN) Links 1100 sites and 250,000 users Partners enjoy a 500% increase in network capacity Resiliency is inbuilt into the network reducing down time to a minimum Increased business broadband capabilities in Kent by 55% Is now able to offer support to local communities that are struggling to receive broadband services
De-Duplication (Cheaper) Before KPSN – there were some 10+ county wide networks After KPSN – there are now 6 left that we know of and 2 of these are in pilots to transfer across to KPSN
Supporting Shared Service (Interoperability, Cheaper, Transformation) GCSx Aggregation GCSx connections live in March 2009. All Local Authorities using aggregated connection April 2009. Savings and Efficiencies – in the region of £95k per annum Has opened opportunities for new ways of working Has provided increased capacity for Partners
Supporting Shared Service (Interoperability, Cheaper, Transformation) Gateways Ease of access – physical/multi channel Customer driven Built on customer insight and feedback Partnership from Central, Local Gov, statutory & 3rd sector providers Service hub collaboration Comprehensive service directory Integrated processes Promote self-help Encourage channel shift
Supporting Shared Services (Interoperability, Cheaper, Transformation) Cluster Working Groups of LAs sharing services such as email, audit, building control, HR, Revs & Bens These are all District or Borough Councils combining services at operational and managerial levels
Supporting Shared Service – it works Success has been achieved between 3 rd and 2 nd tier authorities What about the 1 st tier?
Issues Multiple Information Assurance criteria IL2, Il3, IL4, 224, 334, 444 GCSx, N3, PNN Accreditations A lack of trust between public sector organisations Breaking down the silos, both at a local level and more importantly with tier 1 authorities (central government departments) An in-consistent approach to IA accreditation and service delivery …………AND many more
HELP We need to rationalise Information Assurance requirements We are all public servants paid by the same people the citizens therefore we MUST Start to work more closely with other Public sector organisations Demand changes in the way we work at all levels Focus on delivering Public sectors services in the way the citizen wants Do not just accept NO you can not do it that way – push back
Summary The PSN if implemented and supported locally can change the way public services are delivered Local Regional PSNs can help transform Public Sector service delivery if: All Public sector organisations work together All Public sector organisations start to trust each other All public sector workers realise that they work for the citizens ultimately and therefore deliver services in the way they want It can be done as KPSN and others like HPSN2 and the PSBA are doing it now in the regions.
