As reported in last year's Cabinet Office Autumn Performance report, 96 per cent. of Government services are estimated to be available electronically by the end of 2005, with 75 per cent. of services currently online.

The e-Government Unit will continue to work with central and local government to support the business transformation of Government so it can provide better, more efficient and trusted public services. Under the "Connecting the UK: the Digital Strategy" initiative, it is working with the newly-created Government CIO Council to set out a vision of public service delivery enabled and delivered through technology, and a strategy to achieve that vision.
