To review and update the Internet Use Policy
Use of the internet is a key component in enabling service delivery for Mid Devon District Council. As part of a well-managed council and in conjunction with various legislation the council is required to ensure it has an up to date policy which is read and understood by all members and staff. The policy is required to be reviewed on a three year cycle to ensure that it meets the needs of the organisation and promotes clear understanding around best practice and use of the internet and associated technology in the safe delivery of council services.
