The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister last week offered a further £150,000 of government funding in 2005-2006 to every local authority that submits a "satisfactory" IEG4 (Implementing E-Government) statement by the 20 December deadline. The IEG statements are designed to monitor progress towards Tony Blair's 2005 government targets for getting public services online.

ODPM e-government programme manager Julian Bowrey has written to local authority chief executives to brief them on developments since June.

The ODPM plans to publish final IEG4 guidance this month.
