The public sector is under more pressure and scrutiny today than ever before with transparency, efficiency and cost savings vital. There is an ever increasing need to leverage technology for what it can do for individuals across the CJS from improving capability to driving security and safety for its staff and users.

The MoJ released its Digital Strategy 2025 in April 2022, setting out the ambition to change the user experience of justice by providing simpler, faster and better services for everyone - and every area of the MoJ has already been transformed by the rapidly changing technology landscape. Delivering the changes planned will strengthen the wider justice system but there is need to look beyond the immediate future and explore emerging technologies and their potential to deliver future solutions

Join us for this virtual briefing with the Justice Digital Leadership Team to discuss:

  • The MoJ’s strategic objectives & priorities and how suppliers can help shape the solutions to its biggest challenges.
  • Commercial strategy & procurement approach. When does MoJ use frameworks and dynamic purchasing systems – and why ?
  • Delivering social value. This is essential in partnering with the public sector and service transformation. Central Government agreements already in include approximately 10% weighting towards social value within their evaluation criteria.

What are the MoJ looking for in terms of social value and, how are they monitoring what suppliers have committed to? How are the MoJ progressing social value?

This session will include a briefing from the MoJ followed by a discussion/ Q&A so please come prepared to get involved in the conversation.


Any questions, please reach out to the team using the details below.
