Making the Case for GovTech SMEs

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the techUK SME campaign week by providing guest blogs and contributing to the social media discussions. We have had an impressive variety of opinions from tech leaders across the UK on the campaign week theme of 'Government transformation'.

Government needs to ensure it has access to the best innovative technologies in the tech sector to deliver transformation and real progress has been achieved in making it easier for innovative SMEs to do business with the public sector. Despite this progress, techUK’s 2016 SME Survey showed that companies are still struggling to access the public sector market - highlighting procurement processes and terms and conditions in contracts being amongst the top barriers to entry.

Get involved!

To promote a collaborative relationship between the tech sector and government the techUK public sector programme has a range of market engagement activity planned for the rest of 2017. Highlights include an opportunity to meet the Crown Commercial Service tech Directors on 30 November, where you will have the opportunity to quiz them on how SMEs can supply to the public sector. We will also be holding our regular Snacks & Sips GovTech networking event on 11 December.

To better understand the views of GovTech SMEs operating in the public sector tech market, techUK has launched a comprehensive survey to capture their experiences. This is the third SME survey techUK has undertaken, and the findings will be used to develop recommendations to promote innovation in the public sector, and help dynamic British based SMEs to scale and grow. Complete the survey now!
