Home Office Digital Data and Technology (DDaT) is evolving to meet the changing digital, data and technology needs of the Home Office. Last year Home Office DDaT and techUK formed a strategic industry engagement partnership which aims to: provide a platform for sharing consistent thinking with the digital, data and technology supplier community; ensure that the Home Office is able to keep the community informed about current and emergent needs, and allow the Home Office to develop a clearer view of capabilities and developments in the market.

 This session of our Industry Forum will look at Optimus, a multi-year change programme, which is driving HO DDaT’s evolution and delivering the capabilities to shape, build and run the services needed to support Home Office transformation. Optimus will improve DDaT’s ability to work collaboratively with stakeholders across the Home Office to deliver our technology objectives, improve our staff experience, strengthen our in-house capability, and to better protect the public and deliver better value for money for the taxpayer.

The changes Optimus is delivering are directly related to achieving the Home Office vision for technology and data enablement:

  • Reliable, responsive, secure technology and data
  • Fully accessible, customer-centric digital services, with Digital at the core of an improved experience for citizens, residents and visitors
  • Improved technology experience for employees through better, joined up applications, systems and data
  • Building for the future; aspiring to be a ‘fast follower’ of data and technology innovation

This engagement session will allow Joanna Davinson (Chief DDaT Office, Home Office and colleagues to set out how the Optimus Programme is reshaping the DDaT supplier landscape and provide an overview of a series of high value, professions based procurements that will be launched between February and July 2021.

This event is a must for all tech suppliers, large and small, interested in delivering digital services to the Home Office.
