The home of cross-government innovation

Spark is at the vanguard of government's efforts to cut the deficit and deliver transparent government for the 21st Century. It provides a place to build partnerships across the public, private and voluntary sectors to deliver more for less.

Spark is an open community where people can collaborate on projects, share costs and re-use what's already there to create efficiencies, avoid duplication and save money.

It is intended that Spark will benefit the many different public sector communities across the UK. Please provide us with any feedback (tab on left of screen) which might enable us to do that better.
