BCS moves to overturn negative image of government IT projects

Antony Savvas

The British Computer Society (BCS) is seeking to overturn the negative image of government IT projects by listing top-ranking projects "that have demonstrated success".

The BCS has published a booklet called Success - Public Projects can Work, which profiles award-winning public sector IT programmes.

Each of the organisations nominated are winners or finalists in the BCS IT Industry Awards.

The BCS's top-ranking public sector IT projects are:

- Defence Business Learning

- Environmental Agency flood warning service

- Environment Agency carshare scheme

- National Assembly of Wales new website

- Newcastle City Council's mobile working programme

- Northumbria 101 partnership

- Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council's commitment to modernise VOSA MOT computerisation programme

- West Sussex accessible service partnership

Elizabeth Sparrow, BCS vice president, BCS external relations, said, "These projects have proved their worth in the returns they have offered their communities and the professionalism with which they have been implemented.

"They offer examples of government programmes that both nationally and locally are introducing IT systems that offer citizens efficient, innovative and, above all, useful services."

The booklet can be found on the BCS website
