On Thursday 28th January 2010 CLG also published Understanding the value and benefits of establishing a local information system. This report provides evidence for local partnerships on the costs, savings and other benefits of establishing a local information system. It is accompanied by an online assessment tool to help users estimate the net benefit of their systems.
Led by local partnerships, Local Information Systems (LIS) collect, store and disseminate information to support local decision-making and citizen empowerment. These webpages provide a place for public sector staff to access and exchange support, advice, learning and resources on local information systems.
This network of LIS staff is supported by Communities and Local Government and is informed by the April 2006 CLG report: Local Information Systems: A review of their role, characteristics and benefitsUse our CLG Programmes forum to discuss issues of relevance to local information systems, ask questions or for help, and make suggestions.
