Public Sector IT: Doing More for Less
Download a copy of the Output Report from this Corporate IT Forum workshop.
In contrast to the last decade, public sector information and communications technology (ICT) is experiencing a period of tight budget constraint, driven by central government's austerity agenda. In response, CIOs in the sector are being expected to find ways to maintain delivery of frontline services while delivering relatively high cost savings as a proportion of their finances at the back end: hence the concept of 'doing more for less'.
This document explores those key questions and has been compiled from experience shared during a Corporate IT Forum discussion attended by 15 IT professionals representing 8 public sector organisations with a combined experience of 79 years of public sector IT. Represented components of the sector included local, city and county councils, two central Government Departments and two national agencies.
