Redbridge and Hertfordshire head IT awards

  • Comment

Redbridge LBC and Hertfordshire CC were the winners at the 2010 Local Government IT Excellence Awards at the Socitm conference in Brighton.

Redbridge’s Ilford Blueprint Online, a web-based marketing tool set up with Virtual Viewing, provides 3-D visualisation of development potential in Ilford.

The project team combined web-based technology with planning policy and regeneration, creating an online resource for promoting development opportunity sites that had been identified in Ilford’s area action plan.

In Hertfordshire, an online free school meals project was said to have transformed a service with a complex delivery chain that had proved difficult to improve.

Led by Hertfordshire CC and funded by the Department for Education, the project is working with 174 local authorities in England and Wales and four central government departments to change a difficult, paper-based process to an electronic one.

Innovative technical delivery, shaping the service around the citizen, and persuading providers and users of the benefits of this change were said to be critical to its success.

The Metropolitan Police received a special prize for innovation for its Focus Court Presentation System, while Nuneaton and Bedworth BC was highly commended for its e-buy procurement system.
