The OeE, which is responsible for getting all government services online by 2005, will begin to charge for work carried out after the Capital Modernisation Fund comes to an end.

The CMF was created to fund projects for a two year period which is due to end in September.

The OeE said it will then be invoicing departments for its services.

Chris Hancock, director of knowledge management at the OeE, told VNU News Centre: ‘Next year we will be invoicing out large sums to government departments for our services.

‘The costs should be [invoiced to] where the savings are being made,’ he said.

A spokeswoman for the OeE said: ‘It was always the intention that after the two year CMF for developing cross-department platforms was used, that work would be charged to individual departments.’
