The Design Ops team are building a new service to find out about, and assure digital projects and services in DfE.

Assure your service will include a step-by-step guide to find out about, book, and report on different types of assurance. From discovery peer reviews to service assessments.

The service will be used by service teams, peer reviewers, assessors and the service assessment team. All of whom are involved as either stakeholders or users of the service in research.
