Gordon Brown proposes personalized MyGov web services

News 20 May 2010


A MyGov dashboard that allows every citizen to personalize the explosive growth of government services on the web was proposed today by Gordon Brown. In a wide-ranging speech on the impact of the web on the government, he said the MyGov dashboard will make citizen interaction with government as easy as internet banking or online shopping. Brown said MyGov, which will eventually replace DirectGov, will end the current frustration of web users needing to identify themselves separately for different public services. He also said the dashboard will allow the citizen to manage their pensions, tax credits and child benefits, as well as pay council tax, fix doctors or hospital appointments, apply for schools of their choice and communicate with children's teachers.
