With technology underpinning everything we do, local government authorities continue to embrace the use of information and communications technology (ICT) to streamline their operations. However, the challenge for many is how to prepare their ICT budget and ensure technology benefits are maximised to deliver better services to the community, all while managing costs.


Integrated ICT is a specialist provider of technology services that can help local government authorities plan and prepare their ICT budgets for the coming financial year. We understand the unique challenges that local government authorities face and can provide tailored solutions that meet their needs.


There are a few things that LGA’s can do to ensure they are getting the most out of their ICT budget.


Speak with Integrated ICT


The first step is to speak with a ICT Consultant who are specialists at providing Managed ICT Services to local government, like the team at Integrated ICT. An ICT consultant can provide valuable advice on what technology solutions are available that can help streamline processes, increase efficiency, and provide better services to the community. They can also explain the benefits of managed IT services and how they can provide ongoing support to ensure the smooth running of ICT systems.


Prepare a plan


In conjunction with your ICT Consultant, your LGA can start preparing a plan for the coming financial year. This should involve identifying areas where technology can be used to improve services and increase efficiency. By having a clear plan in place, local government authorities can ensure that they are only spending money on technology solutions that will provide real benefits.


Review new technology


It's important for local government authorities to keep up-to-date with the latest technology solutions that are available. Integrated ICT can provide information on new technology and explain how it can benefit local government authorities. This includes cloud solutions that can reduce hardware and maintenance costs, as well as mobile solutions that can help field workers access up-to-date information while on the go.


Managed IT services


Managed IT services provide ongoing support and maintenance of ICT systems. This ensures that systems remain up-to-date, secure, and running smoothly. Local government authorities can benefit from managed IT services in a number of ways, including reduced downtime, increased efficiency, and lower maintenance costs.
