The Government Digital Service (GDS) leads the Government’s Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) function, helping departments build and run services that are digital by default and focused on the needs of citizens. GDS works with departments to set the government’s strategy for digital transformation, including the Government Transformation Strategy.

Within government we have a strong focus on the concept of “digital maturity”, which encapsulates not only delivery of excellent digital services, but improving government’s processes, tools, and infrastructure, developing DDaT capability and upskilling decision makers to ensure we build on these foundations to deliver digital transformation at scale.

The Office of the Secretary of State for Wales does not provide services directly to the public and uses Ministry of Justice DDaT systems for its operations. The Deputy Director of Corporate Services is responsible for digital maturity in the Department.
