Digital Challenge – Is your bid ready?

Digital Challenge – Is your bid ready?

A series of free seminars throughout the UK.

To assist potential Digital Challenge bidders, Intellect, with the co-operation of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) and a number of ICT private sector companies, is running free seminars throughout the UK.

The Digital Challenge is one of the eight actions contained in the UK Government’s DIGITAL STRATEGY, launched April 2005. The Challenge is a Government-run competition that will act as a catalyst to develop e-enabled local public services and encourage greater exploitation of ICT to better meet the needs of local communities.

Each full day seminar will explain the Digital Challenge evaluation criteria and other areas important to the development of proposals. The successful bid will need to provide evidence of a highly focused and effective partnership of public, private, community and voluntary sectors. The afternoon session will provide an opportunity for one-to-one meetings with the private sector partners who are sponsoring these events.
