Enabling Government Connect
Imerja has joined forces with independent consultancy NCC Group to provide local authorities wishing to join Government Connect with a tailor made package of professional services which will take them from zero to connected with minimal fuss or disruption to their organisation.
Government Connect provides a secure and sustainable framework to securely transmit electronic communications, enabling local government and its partners from other public sector organisations, and the third sector, to deliver personalised joined up services to their customers and offer service improvement. The “enabling” service from Imerja and NCC Group provides an uncomplicated three stage approach which will ensure a seamless implementation from development of the initial business case through to compliance.
The service will be delivered by a team of experienced consultants from NCC Group and Imerja, bringing together the strengths of NCC Group’s independent ICT, information and business consultants with Imerja’s ICT infrastructure security specialists, and drawing on the team’s combined expertise and extensive experience of local government ICT projects.
