May not be quite so appropriate in the 'central' government context but
Socitm in the UK have been doing a lot of work on this and there are a
couple of publications available (at a price), although Googling may come up
with some of the presentations for free :-)
Some clues as to what to Google - some of the examples are Surrey County
Council and Kirklees Council (a unitary). An average unitary in the UK
covers > 700 different service types.

Also, in this context may I promote Socitm and the LCIO Council's work on a
local services ICT strategy?

Hope this helps?
