Refers to the United Kingdom Conservative green paper ‘Government direct’ which proposes a clear strategy for a common public service electronic service based on one-stop shops; and to a report by the consultants Kable ‘Better information for government’. Focuses on the effective delivery of efficient public services which now requires better co-ordination and fundamental government reform, because of the need for different departments’ information systems to be integrated. Considers the effectiveness of stealthy progress rather than instantaneous reform based on the Cabinet Office’s Head of Public Service Delivery. Points out that reorganization of bureaucracy round problems requires analysis of the problem, and political issues of privacy and civil liberties.
