East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Hertfordshire County Council and West Lothian Community Health & Care Partnership have been selected as finalists for the 2006 Local Government IT Excellence Awards.
The awards, organised by the local authority IT managers’ organisation SOCITM and sponsored by Computer Weekly, highlight the use of best practice in public services.
The winner will be announced at the Socitm Annual Conference in Harrogate on 3 October 2006.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s project was selected for its innovative approach to improving customer access, usability and efficiency of the management of all events, facilities and activities in the Council’s venues.
Hertfordshire County Council’s work on the nationally sponsored eAdmissions to schools project was chosen because it involved delivering a new e-service across 150 local authorities in England.
West Lothian Community Health and Care Partnership was shortlisted for its C-me application, which was developed to improve the delivery of services to the children of West Lothian through the development of a shared information system between West Lothian Council Social Services, NHS Lothian, West Lothian Education Schools and Services, Lothian and Borders Police and the Scottish Children's Reporters Office.
