Harnessing the power of the Information Age - enhancing efficiency of local government Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org
Context Local authorities face –Increasing expectations about services at the same time as growing constraints on resources –Increasing regime of targets and inspection –Competition from others public and private to take on the authority role –A government wanting results felt by the citizen but less concerned with who delivers them –Pace of change is faster and the pressure for results quicker Loss of control = Stress!
How do authorities take control Create your own proposition to improve the relationship with the public –For best value service improvement –Innovate in the front office and collaborate on the back office How do we achieve this for citizens and customers –Making us easy to use and trusted to fulfil –Streamline internal processes –Improve the supply chain to the authority –2 nd and 3 rd reduce the cost and enable investment in the 1st
What is it that we can deliver Use of ICT to achieve one stop fulfilment Through choice of channel –By officer in the home –By officer over the counter –Over Internet, Digital TV and Telephone Need for priorities –Access –Engagement –Re-engineering Need for a vision
