Scotland country plan

From Open Government Pioneer Project

This is the overall Scottish Delivery Timeline, which goes into far more detail about our plans than the Project Activity table with milestones for the full UK-wide project. It is the responsibility of each home nation how they choose to project manage their part of the project. This project plan is a live plan that will be updated at various stages in the project life cycle.

For more information, contact Paul Bradley, Project Coordinator (paul.bradley@scvo.org.uk)
