|Councils Consulted on eGovernment Framework|
16 June 2003
Three local government bodies are to work jointly on a new framework for managing eGovernment and to formulate a better understanding of the roles and skills necessary to deliver more effective e-services.
The Society of Local Authority Chief Executives (SOLACE), Society of IT Management (Socitm) and Society of Personnel Officers in Local Government (SOCPO) have published a new briefing paper - Managing eGovernment - based on a survey of leading councils.
The paper identifies the key elements involved in the successful management of eGovernment and outlines a model that local authorities should adopt to deliver effective eGovernment.
Interested parties are now invited to comment on these proposals via a short questionnaire. Opinions on both the framework and skill requirements will be incorporated into a report on eGovernment that will be published in the coming months.
The survey is open to all and comments are requested by 30 June. The report and survey are now available at: http://www.socitm.gov.uk/Public/insight/
