UK’s Audit Agency Questions ROI of Departmental GIS

A recent report from the National Audit Office (NAO) questions whether a £39.3 million project to run geographical information systems at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has delivered on the investment or if a new geographic information systems (GIS) strategy is needed.

The question does not seem to be if GIS is valuabel, but rather that processes are not in place to measure the benefits. So far only £9 million in benefits are documented, though they are expected to be far higher.
