One of the areas within the remit of the planned Director of ICT Futures within government will be changing the terrain for SMEs to enter the government marketplace. It’s useful then that this aspiration is the subject of a government summit taking place today.
The SME Strategic Supplier Summit, organised by the Cabinet Office, was hosted by Francis Maude and involved the Project and Programme Support Group. A number of SME suppliers were invited to attend the event, which was due to discuss making real the opportunities for SMEs to compete for government business.
An announcement of the new opportunities has been made on the Cabinet Office website.
