How can government agecies use technology to improve how they carry out their  mission, deliver services, and maintain transparency and accountability? For Canadian officials and IT pros, a conference this week in Ottawa should help answer some of those questions. Government & Health Technologies Forum 2005, Aug. 30-31, includes such sessions as:

  • Improving Service While Lowering Costs - the Value of Web Self-Service in Government
  • Citizen Centric Government
  • Government to Citizen Electronic Service Delivery and New Strategies for Government Portals 
  • Incorporating Security Into Systems Development Methodology
One caution: while several Candian agencies are speaking, the agenda does look a bit heavy on vendor  presentations. Today's the last day to preregister;  prices go up CN$200 onsite.
