Public Sector eDisclosure Services

Enabling public bodies to reduce cost and improve efficiency of data search, review and disclosure

Crown Commercial Service Public Sector eDisclosure Framework

Thanks to the new eDisclosure service framework (RM3717), we can help any UK public sector body reduce costs and create value, whilst complying with the diverse legal disclosure requirements unique to their organisation.

Those working in the public sector juggle an array of competing demands; doing some of the most demanding work in challenging circumstances. The Crown Commercial Service eDisclosure service framework is designed to provide quick, straightforward access to advanced legal technology for public sector professionals.

We know that understanding the finer points of a fast-developing technical industry such as eDisclosure is unlikely to be top of any public sector leader’s agenda. We’ve designed our technical services to enable public sector leaders to release efficiency savings back into the central delivery of their public services.

What is eDisclosure?

eDisclosure, or electronic disclosure (or often eDiscovery), is the process in which electronically stored information is identified and analysed to aid legal cases by providing evidential materials that can be used in a range of legal proceedings. The eDisclosure service framework allows public service leaders to access a range of services relating to legal process; from civil litigation, Freedom of Information Act requests, Data Subject Access Requests, through disclosures under the Inquiries Act and even to aid organisational learning and strategic review. eDisclosure techniques and technologies can contribute to solving many data challenges faced by the public sector.

Public Sector experience

Our public sector services lead, Eleanor Pyemont, is experienced in having implemented managed eDisclosure services from the perspective of a public sector leader. She is passionate about the cost-saving and efficiencies in performance that can be achieved as part of the UK government’s eDisclosure service framework (RM3717). Eleanor’s public sector background means that we have a real insight into what it means to be a public sector leader faced with competing pressures of data complexity, diverse legacy systems, and a changing legal landscape all to be managed within tight financial controls.

Accessing RM3717 eDisclosure service framework
