DfE Technology Directorate: Strategic Supplier Engagement

Helen Walker, Chief Technology Officer at the Department for Education, and her colleagues in the DfE Tech Directorate want to engage the tech industry on the DfE’s technology strategy and commercial approach.


Date: Monday 8 July 2019

Time: 10:30 – 12:00 (Registration from 10:00) + Lunch

Venue: techUK, 10 St Bride Street, London EC4A 4AD


The Department for Education’s Technology Directorate is embarking upon a market engagement exercise as they define the strategy and commercial delivery for their tech major tech programmes.

This event will allow the DfE to set out to industry the current DfE tech landscape, the major programmes and the key procurements that they intend to launch over the coming years. In particular the event will cover programmes such as Applications, Software, Cloud, Networks & Infrastructure, and Cybersecurity.

The aim of this event is to establish a more structured and proactive approach to market engagement across the Department’s tech landscape. The DfE will be seeking industry expertise to inform their strategy, and this event will be followed by smaller, more focussed events providing regular updates and opportunities for input.

This is a great chance for the tech industry to learn about the DfE’s vision, approach and upcoming opportunities. We anticipate high demand for this event so book your place now.
