Supporting Public Service ReformeGovernment 2012
April 2012
The Programme for Government and the Public Service Reform Plan highlight Information and CommunicationsTechnologies (ICT) as key enablers to delivering improved public services. Implementation of the ICT elements of the Programme and the Reform Plan will ensure a strong focus on the customer and that better and more innovativeuse is made of technology to improve the customer experience.To progress these, CMOD, working with the Public Service CIO Council, will develop a series of policy documents.This first one, entitled eGovernment 2012
2015 identifies a number of priority action areas for Public Bodies whichare intended to enhance public service delivery; ensure that citizens and businesses have ease of access to a range of services through multiple channels; improve data sharing across Public Service organisations; and, develop a moreintegrated approach.Possible topics to be covered in further documents include cloud computing, the use of data centres, sharing of common ICT services, open data, and social networking.
The purpose of public services should be self-explanatory. They are there to serve the public, whether that is citizenor business.The Government is committed to taking action to ensure that, in these economically difficult times, public services aredelivered better than before, and that the improvement is continuous. For this reason, we launched the Public Service Reform Plan in November 2011. eGovernment is a very important element of that Plan.
eGovernment 2012
 sets out a vision of what needs to be done to continue the good 
 progress that has already been made in improving citizens’ and businesses’ access to and interaction with
Government services.We should recognise that we have already achieved significant progress in delivering what I consider to be thetraditional approach to eGovernment. Evidence of this can be seen on the www.gov.ie website which provides links to over 300 informational and transactional online public services. However, Government needs to embrace the potential improvements offered by emerging technologies, like smartphones and tablet devices, that are transforming the ways in which we access information and services. We live in an increasingly connected age, and Government needs to look at how new technologies can improve how we conduct our business and serve the public.This paper identifies a list of key actions that reflect this requirement. We acknowledge what has already beenachieved but r 
eflecting the adage “tús maith leath na hoibre” or “a good start is half the work”, we have an
opportunity to build on our successes to date and to address areas where improvement is needed. Citizens and businesses demand that public services adapt to their needs and this is a framework in which we can ensure greater levels of collaboration in a changing world. Most importantly,
eGovernment 2012
 sets out a vision for where we want to be in eGovernment and the next actions required to make that vision a reality.
