The Mission of the committee is to become a ‘voice’ of the technology industry, which local government seeks to listen to and share insights and problems with, in the aim of solving significant challenges in collaboration. 

The theme for the committee in this tenure is ‘digital ambition’, helping council realise their digital ambition and to explore the potential of technology to solve critical business challenges.

The committee have identified 4 key workstreams – innovation, skills, procurement and influence – to help councils overcome the barriers to transformation as well as build on the opportunities presented by technology and data.

  • Innovation: From demystifying the technologies of today and tomorrow, how they can transform local public service outcomes.,
  • Procurement: Showcasing what good looks like and exploring how procurement can become the enabler to innovation. Helping to create a level playing field and delivering procurement outcomes that deliver the best value for citizens.
  • Skills: Working with the sector and industry to overcome the skills gap and provide insight on the skills of the future to ensure councils are equipped for future tech and data jobs.
