Why are Councils being urged to store documents electronically?
Local Authorities have again hit the document management news headlines as they have been advised by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to store more documents online. John Denham has called on Local Government to help cut costs by trying to reduce the amount of duplication in public services.
Amongst other measures he suggested, he called for a substantial increase in the amount of electronic documents and council information which is published online in order to save on printing, copying and distribution costs.
Mr Denham emphasised the importance of effective information management and how it can deliver savings, improve efficiency and ultimately ensure that the taxpayer’s money is being spent wisely.
