31/08/05 - Competition for hub ends with £4m grant to ICT grouping

The Home Office has finally confirmed the destination of the funding for the controversial ICT hub, awarding all £4m to the NCVO-led ICT Consortium.

Rival coalition Citra, which was locked for several months in a bitter dispute with the ICT Consortium over who should be party to the hub, will not share in the grant. Although the two parties are standing by a deal they made in May that the ICT hub would assist smaller charities with their ICT needs while Citra would look after those with income of more than £1m, Citra will not receive any hub funding for this.
