'MAPIT', the research arm of the Society of Information Technology

Management (SOCITM), has begun to plan its third comprehensive survey of council web sites, Better Connected? 2001. Representatives of all councils are invited to emailwith brief details of any innovation that your site has seen in the past 12 months.

Please email one-line responses to the following questions, with a web

address if relevant: Have you introduced any new interactive application?

Have you introduced some other innovation of special interest? Have you made any formal assessment of user needs? Have you learned any specific lessons from assessing usage statistics? And are there any ways other than simple links in which the website is designed to work with neighbours, local agencies and other partners?

As a new extension of its 'Better Connected' project, MAPIT has also

launched a local authority web site review service. Under the service a review team tests each site from the perspective of various kinds of user, such as single parents or tourists, and issues recommendations for improvement. In association with the RNIB, it also checks for accessibility to people with visual impairment. The charge is£495 to MAPIT subscriber councils and£950 to non-subscribers - contact Martin Greenwood on 01926 498703 or email the above address.

- Please forward this free service to your colleagues so they can subscribe to E-Government Bulletin by sending a blank email.

The more subscribers we have, the better our service can become!
