AFTER DIGESTING feedback from the UK's prototype of a single domain for government, there's now a clear next step towards the gov.uk revolution.
The core objectives of the "Government Digital Service" are:
1. Public beta test of the site delivering the mainstream, citizen-facing aspects of gov.uk.
2. Private beta test of a shared gov.uk 'corporate' publishing platform, aimed at replacing most of the activity currently hosted on numerous departmental publishing environments.
3. A first draft of a gov.uk 'Global Experience Language,' to provide clear, consistent design, user-experience and brand clarity for those developing sites for the single gov.uk domain.
The deadline for delivery of all three objectives is early 2012.
