Open Public Services White Paper, 11/07/11 [E/NI/S/W]

The Cabinet Office has published a white paper which sets out the government‘s approach to modernising public services.

The White Paper sets out the government’s approach to public services by applying five key principles:

Choice – wherever possible we will increase choice
Decentralisation – Power should be decentralised to the lowest appropriate level
Diversity – Public services should be open to a range of providers
Fairness – We will ensure fair access to public services
Accountability – Public services should be accountable to users and taxpayers.

For full details see the Cabinet Office website, the Open Public Services website and the UK Parliament website.
