Assessment Report

The service has been designed using extensive research on the ongoing service and has used a user survey to sample sentiment and wider feedback from the Private Beta group. This has been used to deliver further service improvements. The feedback received has been overwhelmingly positive.


There were no actions that were required for sign-off. The following areas for discussion should be addressed.

  • SIRO sign-off should be secured.
  • The service requires a firmer outline plan about how it will use analytics and further user testing with the public beta to drive further improvements before going to into the live stage.

Next steps

  • SRO sign-of will be secured prior to launch.
  • Work is underway to identify sections of code for publication in open source repositories.
  • Work is underway to integrate with the GOV.UK performance platform.
  • Arrangements are being made to test the service with the minister responsible for the service.
