mygovscot – Vision
A place for people in Scotland to access public
services that are easy to find and simple to
use – services so convenient, people choose
digital first.
What is mygovscot?
• A place online providing access to all public services in Scotland
• A change programme for informational and transactional services
across the public sector
• A design philosophy – placing user needs at the centre of delivery
• A positive user experience – creating a central access point,
providing clarity to the information and services that are available in
Scotland
Why do we need it?
• Exponential growth in content – confusion
• Inconsistent and often poor user experience
• Channel shift opportunity
• Doing it once rather than 100 + times [i.e. standard
processes and functions for efficiency, design, look
and feel for user experience]
• Cost efficiencies
Scope of change
• Public Bodies
• Health
• Partnership working and collaboration with Local
Authorities
Approach to Delivery
• Project Approach

Agile method
The product will develop incrementally
Fine-tune requirements while they’re relatively easy to change
Mygovscot scope is potentially very large
• Release Schedule
– The wider releases of mygovscot have been carefully planned
– We’ve used the terminology Alpha and Beta for the 2 main
releases of mygovscot in 2014
Collaborative, multidisciplinary, agile service design

CREATE
DELIVER
Alpha
• The philosophy behind the alpha release is to
produce a proof of concept to test certain theories
around:
•
•
•
•
Approach to content creation and publishing
Technical architecture and design
Stakeholder engagement and collaboration across the Scottish Public Sector
External communication
• We plan to receive feedback while its still relatively
easy to change the product and approach
• We’re on track for the first release of mygovscot to
take place at the end of July 2014
Beta
• During Beta our focus is on user benefits and producing a
useful product
• We want to establish a strongly branded access point to
public services in Scotland
• We plan to establish a wide breadth of content to help
produce a more complete information architecture for the site
• This should realise significant user benefit by improving
findability of public services
• Additionally we aim to establish a sustainable approach to
maintaining mygovscot content
• Start to work in collaboration with public sector organisations
Standards & Guidelines
• Standards – A set of requirements that a service must
implement, unless a specific exception is made.
• Recommendations – Recommendations should be
implemented where it delivers benefits for the user and is
cost effective to do so. This will initially focus on the
endorsement of industry / open standards.
• Guidelines – Additional and supporting material that
partners could consider if they lack existing capability in
the relevant area.
• Support for change - The transformation team will work
with you to implement the changes required to provide an
enhanced user experience and cost efficiency.

Content
• Content inclusion
– We’re taking an approach focused on prioritised user needs
– Alongside the relationships these have with the public sector
• Publishing flow
– Initial focus for alpha is internal, with a form of partnership model longer
term
– We’re illustrating our thoughts from raw user needs to published content
Information Architecture
•
Browse navigation is using a two tier category approach in alpha, allowing
flexibility to move content items and to continuously improve categories
• Search aims to provide a robust, user friendly experience to
surface content relevant to search queries – it’s our catalyst
for improving browse
Information Architecture
• Early thoughts on our approach to information
architecture will also include;
– Straight forward, clear and beneficial meta data for all content
items
– A basic taxonomy to identify terms (parent / child), their
respective relationships and what the connections are – with the
approach being matured over time
– We will use current examples wherever possible e.g. Linked
