Harnessing technology & procurement to power innovation

Wednesday 24 April

Time: 11:00 - 12:00 via Teams Live

Digital, data and technology (DDaT) provide the tools that deliver and underpin modern public services. As we face increasingly harsh economic realities the need to innovate and explore how both proven and newly emerging technologies can help the sector deliver better, faster, more efficient services intensifies.

However, procuring innovation can be cumbersome within traditional approaches and many organisations struggle to buy innovative solutions and services that 'break the mould'. How can we best approach this? Does the new Procurement Act 2023, due to come into effect this autumn, provide an opportunity to reimagine procurement, to boost innovation and transform public services?

Our expert panel will explore 'the art of the possible' when it comes to harnessing public sector procurement to power DDaT innovation:

Who should attend?
Chief and Senior Leaders and Officers involved in the procurement of DDaT-driven innovation to transform local public services, including but not limited to: Chiefs / Directors / Heads of Digital, Data, Technology and Procurement. Heads of Transformation, Customer Services, Finance, Social Care, Housing, Revenues and Benefits looking to harness digital, data and technology to transform service delivery.
