#techUKlocalgov Update | Local Digital Opportunities

Dear Georgina,

techUK is delighted to have teamed up with Tussell, to bring you monthly updates on contracts and opportunities in the govtech market. Please find below the first insight on live opportunities in public sector IT. 

This month we’ve been working closely with colleagues in the Communications Infrastructure team to bring you a series of events on Local government connectivity. Last week we had a roundtable with local authorities on delivering superfast broadband, and on 11 June we have a workshop with Greater London Authority on developing a London wide approach to connectivity.

All the best, 

Georgina Maratheftis
Head of Local Public Services
