The Digital Experts programme was established in March 2015 when, following a comprehensive bidding and assessment process, the LGA agreed to fund 27 projects involving 42 councils. The projects are summarised in Appendix 1 of this report. 

The objective of the funding was to enable more councils to use the digital tools and approaches already successfully applied by their peers, complementing other work for instance on shared services, commercialisation or demand management.
