IT Trends 2002/3 Reports on Progress to 2005


11 December 2002

Nearly half of the local authorities in England, Wales and Scotland say they are on target to meet the Government’s 2005 deadline for 100% electronic service delivery, according to the Society of IT Management's IT Trends 2002/3 survey released today.

According to the report, some 39% of local authorities are less sure of meeting the deadline, while 15% say they are focusing instead on e-enabling services likely to deliver to deliver the greatest benefit.

The survey, now in its 16th year, is based on information from around 200 Heads of ICT plus a further 200 or so responses to shorter questionnaires sent to e-champions, Heads of Social Services, and local authority IT suppliers.

Overall, councils estimate the total cost of e-government implementation up to 2005 to be £2bn, although at this stage councils are unable to say how nearly half of that estimated spend will be funded.
