Who is the strategy aimed at?

In line with the approach of, and commitments in Scotland's Digital Future: Delivery of Public Services, this strategy has been developed with and for the Scottish public sector and their partners to maximise the benefits of an aggregated approach to delivery, and all sectors have signed up to it through the Digital Public Services National Level Actions Board, the sectors in scope are:

  • Central Government including Police and Fire
  • Local Authorities
  • Health
  • Further and Higher Education.

The strategy will also be available to the third sector and in particular is appropriate where they are supporting the direct delivery of public services.
