CRISIS OF CONFIDENCE OVER E-GOV TARGETS

A quarter of councils believe they are unlikely to hit the 25% service target for e-government just days before the first DTLR deadline, an LGC survey suggests.

The survey, conducted as part of a report on the state of the local government ICT market, found 20% of councils thought the target would be 'difficult to achieve'. A further 4% described it as 'impossible'.

However, 23% of councils claimed to have already met the target and the remaining 53% said they were close and would reach it next year.

Overall the survey found a more upbeat picture than a similar exercise a year ago, when little more than a third of councils were confident of meeting the targets.
