University of Teesside
At the University of Teesside while studying for my BSc, I was given the opportunity to research, plan and implement a project. At this point of time, I was working within local government and we were faced with challenges in implementing the new e-goverment agenda which central government was encouraging all local authorities to adhere to.
After analysing the needs of local government and speaking to some of my colleagues I created a prototype content management system aimed at the needs of local government based on my experience updating / managing a local government website and what I learned researching appropriate standards and frameworks. At the end of my project I had a fully implemented project plan with a prototype content management system that adhered to most of the e-government standards for local government websites.
