Planting the Flag: a Strategy for ICT-enabled local public services

eGov - Tomorrow’s public services, as envisioned in the Planting the Flag: aStrategy for ICT-enabled local public services launched on May 11 lays the groundwork for truly joined up government, at least, locally.

This  will involve unprecedented levels of collaboration between local authorities, emergency services, health, education and civil society organisations andrequire radical re-design of the ways services are currently delivered.

Planting the Flag is a Local CIO Council initiative led by Socitm’s Futures group. The Strategy sets out how technology can enable public service reform across the whole range of local services and deliver significant savings and better outcomes for people where they live and work. Providing, of course, that local public service leaders commit to the sort of value-driven, cost reducing, organisational change it advocates.
