Join us for our next digital buying community of practice

Following my previous blog announcing the launch of the UK’s first public sector digital buying community, I was amazed by the response.

So many of you wanted to get involved in our effort to help buyers of digital, data and technology services to build their commercial and technical awareness and capability.

In just 6 months, attendance at our digital buying community meet ups, which are held in collaboration with Government Digital Service (GDS), has grown by a staggering 523% (and continues to grow),

Join our next meet up

Our next meet up will be taking place on 16 January 2019 at Tech UK in London. (10am-2pm)

During our session we will be discussing topics including how to draft Statement of Work and how to write requirements that are SME friendly (Delivered by our SME champion Richard Hassett). We will also welcome Cate Mclaurin from London Borough of Hackney who will be sharing their successful journey through the Digital Marketplace and their thinking about the skills and behaviours needed to use it effectively. We will also be doing a quick overview (what and how to buy) from our other digital agreements.

Join us to celebrate our amazing profession, network and learn about best practices when using our agreements. Simply complete this form stating ‘16 January digital buying community’ to request an invitation.

I can’t wait to see you there.
