A new cross-sector forum offers those in the public sector grappling with the e-government challenge access to the ideas, tools and guidance they will need to effect real change in their organisations.So promises its sponsor, the Institute of Public Finance, (IPF) which will launch the project in Central London on November 1.

The e-Government Forum aims to act as an independent body in promoting the development of best practice in the formulation and implementation of e-Government.

Membership and participation is aimed at Chief Executives, Directors of Finance, Strategic Business Managers and e-Champions from all public service bodies. An innovative feature of the Forum will be positive and substantial engagement with the private sector.
