Abstract: This policy and its principles refer to the Government in its roles as a purchaser of IT and to services delivered by, for, or on behalf of central government departments, their agencies, non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs) and any other bodies for which they are responsible. We recognize, however, that most public bodies deliver services through IT enabled projects, many of which need to work across organizational boundaries. Consequently whilst this policy focuses on central government, we shall work to promote the open standards principles for software interoperability, data and document formats with all public bodies in the UK. Local government, the wider public sector and the Devolved Administrations are encouraged to adopt the principles to deliver wider benefits.
