THE UK’s LEADING EVENT DEDICATED TO SHARING
best practice, emerging trends and innovations in Business and IT across Central Government and Executive Agencies

At a glance

DIGITAL ACTIVITIES AND TECHNOLOGY INNOVATIONS ARE CRITICAL TO ACHIEVING COST SAVINGS AND UNLOCKING EFFICIENCIES ACROSS CENTRAL GOVERNMENT.

In 2015/16, the UK government saved £3.3 billion for the taxpayer, with Government Digital Service standards and provision of assurance accounting for £339 million of this. With ambitious plans to transition away from legacy systems towards common technology infrastructures and shared platform services – the UK government is committed to delivering better public services for less.

The reimagining of government interaction with citizens is matched by efforts to cultivate a Civil Service that is restless about continuous improvement. While technology has helped to kick-start new conversations and new ways of working, there is still some way to go in ensuring ICT is a key enabler in transforming the way public services are designed, delivered and consumed by end-users. The Government Transformation Strategy 2017-20 acknowledges that “government has been slow to use the transformative potential of digital technology to change the way it does business” and the need for back-office transformations “which might not directly change policy outcomes or citizen-facing services but which is vital if government is to collaborate better and deliver digitally-enabled change more effectively.”

WHITEHALL MEDIA’S LEADING 9th CGBT CONFERENCE IS A PREMIER ANNUAL EVENT DEDICATED TO BRIDGING THE BUSINESS GAP
between the Civil Service and technology capabilities required to build world-class services that are simpler, faster and clearer to use. This must-attend national event brings together hundreds of key decision-makers in central government and provides a powerful platform for technology pioneers to discuss both policy and best practices required to achieve a lean, innovative, and entrepreneurial government.
