New Central Government Council members announced

techUK is pleased to announce the new members of the Central Government Council

Following recent elections, we are delighted to be able to share with you all the new members of the Central Government Council. The elections were very close, and we had double the nominations than there were seats available.

The primary role of the Central Government Council is to represent technology suppliers who supply to Whitehall, lead debate on new technologies, optimise the use of existing capabilities and engage with Government. The council works to set the strategic direction of techUK's Central Government Programme, reflecting techUK member priorities and providing a means for the public sector to engage with industry. 

The Central Government Council is made up of 10 large companies and 10 SME representatives, each one bringing a wide range of knowledge and expertise.

We are excited to work with the new members of the council to drive our ambitious programme of work here in the Central Government Programme, work closely with Government and make sure member priorities are accurately reflected.
