A quick tour of Inside Government

Today we released Inside Government, bringing together all the corporate and policy information of 2 ministerial departments (out of a total 24) and 3 smaller public bodies (out of the hundreds of agencies and other bodies who will later be joining the site).

Here’s a quick video to explain what Inside Government is all about.

You can find this video, along with some more information, at www.gov.uk/tour

The new URLs for the 5 organisations are:

www.gov.uk/dclg – Department for Communities and Local Government
www.gov.uk/dft – Department for Transport
www.gov.uk/dsa – Driving Standards Agency
www.gov.uk/brac – Building Regulations Advisory Committee
www.gov.uk/pins – The Planning Inspectorate

Roll credits

Inside Government was built by GDS, but it’s the people in the 5 departments and agencies who deserve most of the credit for today’s launch.

We are hugely grateful to the following people for their hard work, pragmatism, broad shoulders and the trust they have placed in us. Thanks for being the first and helping us learn.
