If you are active or looking to break into the local government market, register now for this techUK member only market insight briefing.

Local government can be perceived as a complex market to navigate.  However, there is a steady stream of opportunities in the local government ICT market. According to Tussell, technology spend in local government is large, but has grown more slowly than other areas of the public sector. It has grown 15% from FY18-19 – FY22/23. Frameworks are becoming an increasingly popular route to market within the Local Government ICT space.

Attend this webinar to be better informed on how councils procure tech and the frameworks you need to be on. Members will be better informed of the size of the local government tech market, latest spend, who the biggest buyers and suppliers are as well as the contracts due for renewal in the next year. Tussell will use data on public contracts and spending to present and outline the state of local government IT and tech. We will also get the local government perspective from Cassandra Gardiner, Head of Digital Innovation & Change, Redbridge council who will talk about frameworks, internal process and governance and how best to navigate the market for SMEs and new entrants. While Terry Brewer, Head of Public Sector Delivery, Social Value Portal and Former Procurement Director at various London Boroughs will share his insights and how best to navigate the challenges and opportunities social value presents in local government procurement.

It will be a session full of practical insights and tips to help industry put their best foot forward.
