Family and Community Services, in partnership with Microsoft, the Greater Canterbury Community Response Forum and the Parry Field Charitable Foundation, plan to build the ICT capacity of Christchurch Non-Government-Organisations (NGOs) by offering organisations the opportunity to have
- their existing ICT (Information & Communications Technology) environment reviewed, and
- a practical plan developed which recommends how the organisation can improve their use of ICT.
These ICT assessments and plans will be developed by Infoxchange, a Not-For-Profit organisation that specialises in helping NGOs make better use of technology. Interested organisations should submit an expression of interest through the link at the bottom of this page.
Organisations seeking to participate in the program will expected to:
- Speak with one (or more) members of their Board to gain their support prior to applying to participate in the program
- Complete a questionnaire about your current ICT environment, challenges and priorities
- Make time for your CEO and the person responsible for ICT in your organisation to meet with Infoxchange to discuss your ICT priorities and future business goals
- Work with Infoxchange to provide them with information about your current ICT environment
- Meet with Infoxchange to review and discuss the draft ICT improvement plan
- Attend to one or more workshops with other NGOs to share your ICT experiences and discuss how NGOs might potentially share skills and knowledge to get better value from their ICT investments
- Participate in a post-project survey to provide feedback on the process and the value of the project.
While applications to participate in the project have now closed (24 April 13), if you want more information don't hesitate to contact Marcus Harvey (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Henrietta Hall (email@example.com).
