BCS Asks Members to Vote on UK Government IT Policies

The Chartered Institute for IT, BCS, is conducting a survey amongst its members to determine the top five IT agendas the new UK coalition government need to deal with.

BCS hopes to influence the IT policies the new government adopts by highlighting the issues raised in their survey.

CEO of BCS David Clarke said: “We aim to fully reflect members’ expertise and turn that into core policies that will ensure the most positive impact for IT and society, and bring these issues to the top of the national agenda.”

BCS members can vote on 20 topics that currently require the new government's attention, including the Digital Economy Act and the devising of a code of practice for dealing with personal healthcare information.

The results of the BCS survey will be posted on the Policy and Public Affairs Board of the Institute.
