The Cabinet Office, along with the Offices of the Leaders of the House of Commons and Lords, have successfully migrated their websites over to the government’s recently launched single domain website, GOV.UK.
GOV.UK replaces Directgov and will see the remaining seven ministerial departments migrated across by the end of March, with over 300 other departments and public bodies to follow at a later date.
The Government Digital Service (GDS) has now successfully migrated 11 out of 18 ministerial departments on to GOV.UK.
GDS has described the Cabinet Office’s switch as a ‘huge milestone’.
A blog on GDS’s website said: “It’s the moment GDS’s own parent department makes the change we are asking all other central government organisations to make.
“More importantly, it’s the moment GOV.UK becomes home to the centre of government.”
GOV.UK launched in October last year and will act as a single domain for citizens accessing services and information across government, and forms a fundamental part of the government’s digital strategy to get more transactions online to cut costs and improve efficiencies.
