Cabinet Office hits the road to engage with ‘new generation’ of suppliers

ComputerWorldUK - The government has begun a tour of the UK, where it will be hosting a number of events to engage with a ‘new generation’ of IT suppliers that will help the Cabinet Office deliver on its ambitions of transforming public services for the digital era.

Chief technology officer, Liam Maxwell, and crown representative for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), Stephen Allott, will be hosting events in Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh and London.

The Cabinet Office has said that government departments are looking to work with ‘more innovative and efficient IT suppliers’ to help deliver savings of £1.2 billion by 2015 by digitising public services and transactions, a plan that was set out in the government’s Digital Services Strategy.
