|Less than 1 in 10 IEG3 statements considered unsatisfactory|
16 December 2003
The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister has announced over 90 per cent of local authorities across the country that submitted an Implementing Electronic Government (IEG) Round 3 statement have been assessed as satisfactory.
Only 35 out of 399 local councils have been requested to re-submit their IEG3 statement including two in the London region, the London Boroughs of Havering and Richmond Upon Thames.
The results collated from the IEG 3 process are "very encouraging" according to local e-Government Minister Phil Hope, who is "confident" that councils are on course to meet the 2005 e-services target.
The announcement came at the same times as the publication of a report reviewing the achievements of the first year of the National Strategy for Local e-Government. This report looks at the current state of the 20 National Projects and the 100 e-Government partnerships, as well as looking forward to the requirements for fulfilling the Government's 2005 goals.
