Audit Scotland has published a new digital briefing to support public bodies embarking on ICT projects.

The public spending watchdog has summarised the issues identified in its previous work on ICT projects across the public sector, and used these to design a set of core principles for public bodies to follow. As well as case studies from previous Audit Scotland reports, the briefing also refers to examples from around the world to demonstrate that the issues that Scottish bodies have encountered are common across the globe.

View the briefing here, and read our blog to find out more about the audit team’s approach to the new publication.

With digital technology increasingly a core part of public services, Audit Scotland is focusing its future work on how well the public sector is using it to improve and transform public services. View our refreshed work programme for more detail on planned audits.
