E-petitions

  1. 1. Peter Herlihy e-petitions
  2. 2. e-petitions – the first GDS product e-petitions is the first product delivered by Government Digital Service during the summer of this year. Delivered using a mix of GDS expertise and suppliers from the SME marketplace. Delivered in just 6 weeks including procurement. Cheap. Public domain photo by U.S. Navy
  3. 3. e-petitions – the first 100 days We had immense load immediately following launch - somewhat inconveniently at the time of the Riots, swamped us, which we quickly fixed Continued with agility reacting to user feedback to make incremental enhancements A product is never really delivered, it is just released and continually evolves Photo CC licenced from flic.kr/p/6echM9
  4. 4. e-petitions – in numbers Since we have launched, we have 25,000 had over 25,000 petitions, 3 million signatures, and of these 6 have passed the magic 100,000 3 million threshold for a petition become eligible for a debate. Importantly the government has 6 acted on these petitions that have reached the threshold – inspiring confidence.
  5. 5. e-petitions – is the product effective? Widespread media coverage... especially through social media, where mechanisms we have included for twitter and facebook allow people to garner support from likeminded people very easily. The most popular petitions have reached their 100k target inside 4 or 5 days. From the citizen view - hugely effective.
  6. 6. e-petitions – one final thought Every minute of every It costs us less than hour of every day, 18 1p per transaction! people sign an e-petition... Photo CC licenced from flic.kr/p/MQeVP
