SRP: Cabinet Office smoke screen

It’s good to see from the latest update that the Cabinet Office has taken responsibility for structural reform of ICT (Sections 1.9 to 1.13).  It was intriguing to see something which is entirely sensible:

1.9.i. Increase the Chief Information Officer’s power to integrate ICT across government. (Completed)

But, it begs a few of questions:

  • When was it completed?
  • What was the instrument for increasing that power in central and local government?
  • What tools have been provided to enable this integration?
  • Who is the CIO?

Research of earlier transparency web site records show that:

  • The July baseline only included 5 items in Section 1 (Civil Service Reform).
  • The October 2010 Progress reports can only be generated for months from November 2010 onwards.

There have obviously been a number of changes to the Cabinet Office SRP, but where are the documents?

There are lots more completed actions – but the results do not seem to have been published.  This more like a smoke screen than a telescope for transparency.
