Central Government

The Central Government Programme represents the supplier community of technology to the UK Government. We advocate for the govtech sector, evangelise tech as a solution to public sector challenges, facilitate market engagement and help make the public sector an easier market to operate in. We help members make the most out of the govtech opportunity, and help government become a more intelligent customer for tech, ultimately driving value for money and improved public services for citizens.

Welcome to the Central Government Programme

All techUK's work is led by our members - techUK members can keep in touch or get involved in our work by joining this group, and stay up to date with the latest events and opportunities in the programme.

Social Value Campaign Week 2024

Take a look at our #techUKSocialValueWeek Member Contributions

Social Value Week 2024

This campaign week we focused on how technology companies are supporting social value initiatives and making positive contributions to communities across the UK. Social value has been a requirement in public sector procurement since 2013, and a determinant of public procurement outcomes since 2020. We wanted to highlight how techUK members have used the policy in central government contracts to deliver meaningful outcomes for communities and the environment.
