Socitm consults on Open Public Services

Socitm is seeking members’ comments and questions on the Government’s Open Public Services white paper that was published last month.

Open Public Services sets out how the Government intends to make improvement happen by putting choice and control in the hands of individuals and neighbourhoods, encouraging public services to become more responsive to peoples' needs.

Five broad principles are set out in the paper for modernising public services:

  • increasing choice
  • decentralising power
  • making public service provision open to a range of providers
  • ensuring fair access to public services
  • making public services accountable to users and taxpayers

Socitm will be responding to the consultation in September and invites members to offer their questions comments now, via the Socitm blog Copies of Open Public Services are available at
