Following consultation with business, the government today announced the launch of a new strategy to use new technologies both within government departments, and in the delivery of public services.
It lays out further action that should be taken to put innovation at the heart of relationships between government and its suppliers.
This is divided into three sections:
- people, establishing technical skills and creating innovative leaders and culture
- process, which includes help with funding experimentation and innovative procurement
- data and technology, including accessing and sharing useful data, how we can tackle legacy technology and updating standards and guidance
Taken together these changes can help deliver a more attractive government marketplace which encourages CBI members to invest in innovative technologies and new ways of working.
“We need to make sure that government’s procurement and business case processes promote innovation using emerging technologies. Part of this will involve finding effective ways to scale successful solutions, in order to make services better and more efficient.”
