The Government is looking to form private and public sector

partnerships as it commits to putting all services online.



According to e-Envoy Alex Allan it will, for example, look at offering its

employment services via recruitment sites.



Following the launch of a report committing the Government to making all

public services available online by 2005, Allan said that it was looking

to open up discussions with private-sector sites: ”We are open for

business and are happy to talk to anyone with ideas.”



The E-government Report (www.iagchampions.gov.uk) sets out the

Government’s strategy of using digital TV, the internet, mobile devices

and kiosks to deliver public services including tax returns.



”The E-government Report is part of an ongoing process that is setting out

a route-map for achieving the vision of Information Age Government,” said

a Cabinet Office spokesman. ”The Government intends that all services

which are able to be electronically delivered, should be.”
