Transformational Government Framework Primer Version 1.0


Start: 2011-03-17, Publication: 2011-05-28


This Primer is intended to serve as an introduction to and detailed overview of the “Transformational Government Framework” (TGF) - a practical “how to” standard for the design and implementation of an effective program of technology-enabled change at national, state or local government level. It also covers the Framework’s rationale, purpose, scope, and intended use. The Framework is a managed process of ICT-enabled change in the public sector, which puts the needs of citizens and businesses at the heart of that process and which achieves significant and transformational impacts on the efficiency and effectiveness of government. The Primer is in three main parts: * Part I, including an Introduction and Overview, sets out the context in which the TGF has been produced, its purpose, and the principal users at whom the Framework is aimed. * Part II describes the Transformational Government Framework itself, including the conformance criteria by which users of the Framework may determine if they are conformant. * Part III provides a set of Guidance Notes providing further information to users of the TGF on how they can implement it in practice.
