The Guardian and Tate Bramald have published their research in to The Use of IT in Non-Profit Making Organisations. The survey suggests that “use of IT for internal office purposes is generally patchy.” Of the 221 charities surveyed, 37% did not have any member of staff with responsibility for IT. Annual IT budgets were around £20,000, or 2% of expenditure. Forty five per cent of respondents rated e-commerce as unimportant or irrelevant to charities.
