The description of the webcast is as follows:
This webcast will outline the Home Office's technology transformation Programme – ReSET4, and explain what this process will mean for the supplier market.
The ReSET4 technology transformation programme is responsible for the disaggregation of the Home Office's core infrastructure, and the development of a new approach to the ways we procure, design, build and manage our IT. It stands for ReShaping: Skills, Efficiencies and Technology for a new Home Office.
The imminent expiry of several major IT contracts in 2016 has presented the Home Office with an opportunity to transform the way we procure, use and manage IT services. The Home Office will disaggregate its IT contracts, moving away from large end-to-end contracts and being tied to particular technologies. For the Home Office, disaggregation will reduce operational costs, enable continuous improvement and allow us to operate in a more flexible and efficient way; For our suppliers, disaggregation will lower the competitive barrier of entry, creating a fairer and more competitive marketplace encouraging a wider spectrum of suppliers to bid for these smaller, more flexible government contracts.
This webcast will be presented by Home Office CTO – Denise McDonagh CBE and Home Office Head of Strategy, Transformation and Architecture – Simon Bond. Denise and Simon will outline the Home Office's provisional procurement framework which will run from Summer 2014 to the end of this calendar year and answer any questions you may have surrounding this process.
