Discovery launch: How do local authorities make procurement decisions?

As co-publishers of the Local Digital Declaration, a shared ambition for the future of local public services, techUK hosted an unconference and workshops on the market’s response to the Declaration. One of the outcomes was to conduct a discovery to better understand the procurement process when councils purchase a digital service/technology. We know that procurement processes can vary significantly between local authorities and we are keen to understand internal processes and behaviours. In doing this, we hope to enable industry to better engage with local government as well as create a level playing field for SMEs, whilst ensuring councils get the most appropriate and competitive solutions for them and their users.
We welcome hearing from all those involved in the procurement process – from digital leads to commissioning to procurement. We have a short survey that will take no longer than 5-10 minutes to complete. Alternatively, if you would like to talk to us in more detail at a face-to-face meeting or on call please get in touch with Georgina Maratheftis.
If you are a techUK member or supplier active in the local govtech market, please do share with your council partners.
We aim to play back the insights to the wider local government and supplier community.
