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.
