PwC to evaluate Swansea e-gov program

PricewaterhouseCoopers will conduct a two year review of
Swansea council’s e-government program,
looking into its potential savings and value for money.

The program
comprises a £64m first phase, called Resource@Swansea, which is expected to
improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the delivery of the council’s
finance, HR, payroll and procurement services.

Earlier this month the first phase of the program was launched with a new
online purchasing system, while discussions about a second phase which would
include a call centre and a face-to-face contact centre are ongoing.
