GOV.UK Verify pilot participation agreement for councils – Sept 2016
This document summarises all the skills and resources that councils need to be able to participate in our first pilot projects to test GOV.UK Verify in local government. If you can meet our project timelines and fulfill the below requirements, we’d like to partner with you and we’ll do our best to support you through the process of connecting to GOV.UK Verify.
It’s not a legally binding commitment, but we need evidence that there’s enough communication and buy-in across the council to ensure that we don’t face too many unexpected obstacles just before go-live. So, we ask that each participating council demonstrates its commitment to the below project plan with the signature of 2 senior managers - one of which must be the Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO). Other signatories can include your CEO, CIO, CTO or Head of IT, CDO or Head of Digital, CFO, your Head of Service, or your council’s Digital Leader (i.e. a councilor).
If you think you are close to meeting all requirements, but you’re not sure about 1 or 2 of them, highlight your concerns in the application form by September 26th and we’ll see if we can help you to make it work. You can also book in a phone call to discuss the pilots with one of our team before applying using this sign-up sheet.
