UKAuthority

"UKAuthority is the prime communication channel to public sector decision makers in the digital space. We are 'the' trusted, independent media organisation, promoting digital innovation and best practice for better and lower cost digital public services that citizens choose to use."

Helen Olsen, CEO and Managing Editor, UKAuthority

Online news service, UKAuthority.com, attracts more than 41,000 visitors a month, updating these public sector decision makers and influencers with the latest digital news for their sector. More than 16,000 start the week with our UKA Extra weekly email news round-up. UKA Live interactive round table TV debates bring the community together with policy makers and thought leaders, while UKAtv enables the news-makers to speak to the community in their own words. Social media and email keep the conversation alive across our core editorial and research database of 32,250 decision makers across central and local government, police, fire, health and ancillary services.

We are unique in that we have a fully integrated, comprehensive mix of media and engagement channels:

  • web news channels
  • internet TV / interactive webcasts
  • video production
  • virtual & physical events
  • social media
  • direct email / email updates
  • quantitative and qualitative research

With the acquisition of E-Government Bulletin in 2014, we are also proud to have the UK's best team of technology journalists specialising in the public sector today working across the UKAuthority portfolio. Our focus is editorial first and foremost: news independence is an immutable part of our ethos.

UKAuthority is a trusted, reliable and informed commentator on news and developments in the public sector's use of digital technologies.

We also have the skillsets to deliver ground breaking integrated and bespoke sales, marketing and engagement services, including quantitative research, presenters and panel moderators, interactive webinars, engaging video documentaries and case studies, thought leadership content and lead generating email broadcasts - alongside traditional web advertorial and advertising opportunities – to help both private and public sector clients to engage with the sector.

UKAuthority has been contracted since 2013 to partner the Department for Communities & Local Government (DCLG) in the delivery of its Local Digital Campaign. The Campaign is funded through DCLG resource and matched funding from the supplier community in the form of Campaign Sponsorship.

The circulation and audience for all UKAuthority titles and channels revolves round our core Database. This constantly evolving database reflects the dynamic change sweeping across the public sector - tracking and keeping current the status of over 32,250 chief and senior executives, directors and officers across central and local government, police, fire, health and ancillary services.

What they say about us...

"Up until recently my experience of UKAuthority was just consuming their newsletter and news updates, but the Microsoft SME support programme enabled me to participate in one of the UKA Live debates and put across the SME point of view. A debate I enjoyed alongside my fellow participants Mark and Josh ably controlled and steered by Helen. Chatting to Helen afterwards highlighted her depth and experience of public sector and the breadth of contacts UKAuthority had, we went on to use them to promote the Local Social Fund product we were launching using their contacts database to great success."Paul Tomlinson, Managing Director, IEG4
"Learning Pool has participated in several productions with UKAuthority. We have found these debates to be really beneficial in improving our profile with our target market. Our experience is that UKAuthority is well respected across local and central government and as such participating in their productions has given us a reach into new parts of the sector has been really useful. Helen and the team are also great to work with and the quality of the other panellists has been very high."Paul McElvaney, Managing Director, LearningPool
