The supply management workstrand builds on work already undertaken to deliver a step-change in the efficiency of outsourced government ICT.
A large proportion of Government ICT is outsourced to the private sector. While this increases our pool of resources and improves efficiency, Government has not always managed relationships with suppliers effectively. The supply management workstrand builds on the work already undertaken by the CIO Council, the Cabinet Office and private sector partners, to deliver a step-change in the efficiency and effectiveness of outsourced Government ICT. This will incorporate delivery of the ICT Procurement strategy for Government, which will provide the procurement vehicles that enable implementation of Government ICT.
