Electron impact collision strengths, energy levels, oscillator strengths, and spontaneous radiative decay rates are calculated for Ne III. The configurations used are 2s 22p 4, 2s2p 5, 2p 6, 2s 22p 33s, 2s 22p 33p, and 2s 22p 33d giving rise to 86 fine-structure levels in intermediate coupling. Collision strengths are calculated at five incident energies, 5.2, 10, 15, 20, and 25 Ry. Excitation rate coefficients are calculated as a function of electron temperature by assuming a Maxwellian electron velocity distribution. Using the excitation rate coefficients and the radiative transition rates, statistical equilibrium equations for level populations are solved at electron densities covering the range of 10 8 to 10 14 cm -3 at an electron temperature of log Te (K) = 5.0, corresponding to maximum abundance of Ne III. Relative spectral line intensities are calculated.
