The Government Digital Service has lead responsibility for the development of digital and technology guidance and standards in central Government including their assurance through devolved mandated powers from Treasury. This is achieved through Technology Code of Practice for investment, the Digital by Default Service Standard for design, build and delivery and the Government Service Design Manual for best practice. All Government departments are required by policy to follow the standards and guidance when developing new IT and digital solutions.
