eGov monitor Weekly

14 October 2002

The long-awaited final version of e-gov@local, the Government’s national strategy for local eGovernment, will be announced by the end of this month, it has been confirmed.

Christopher Leslie, Parliamentary Under-Secretary to the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office, made the announcement last week in a speech to the Institute of Revenues Rating and Valuation Conference. Addressing delegates, the Minister outlined a vision for the future of local government in England, stressing that any view must involve the use of information technology to deliver better services. Mr Leslie revealed little of the actual content of the final strategy, stating only that the document would be “succinct and easily accessible” and “relevant to senior decision-makers – such as chief executives and council leaders - staff, citizens and service users alike”. He also said that the document would be supported by a “web-based resource” which will include information, best practice, guidance and discussion groups.

The final version of e-gov@local is expected to clarify the priorities for the development of eGovernment for local authorities in England, who were required to use the draft consultation paper, published in April, as the basis of their second Implementing Electronic Government Statements.
