The UK Public sector is one of the largest parts of our national economy and as such has been under enormous pressure over the past two years in the wake of the banking crisis and the global economic slowdown. 'More with less' has been the mantra echoing around public sector ICT for ever and a day, but it's never been truer than in 2011.
If the last decade was ‘Spend Spend Spend’ when it came to public sector ICT, then this second decade of the century is all about ‘Change Change Change’. Leaders in the Town Hall and big government Department alike are being asked to do more with less, to take radical steps to save cost, and figure out innovative ways to preserve what is important by things like the Cloud, shared services, public sector networks and digital transformation.
The UK Public Sector Digital Awards, formerly known as the e-Government National Awards, celebrate excellence in ICT enabled service delivery across all sectors of government. They recognise the vital role of ICT and the ICT professional across the public sector and commends their remarkable achievements at a time of remarkable pressure.
For all that is good in public sector ICT, the UK Public Sector Digital Awards are the ultimate benchmark.
