One of the UK’s local councils – Croydon – has announced it is changing its ICT delivery model by moving away from its current single-supplier ICT contract to a mix of specialist vendors managed by an in-house team. Is this the start of a more common approach we wonder following the Carillion collapse? The ‘Good to Great’ programme plans to change the council’s internal ICT organisation to bring control and accountability for the new supply arrangements in-house. Croydon Council has appointed a digital partner, Rainmaker, using G-Cloud, to help it over a three-year period in a multi-sourcing programme that will implement new ICT capability across the council. We will watch the programme with interest, but for now you can read more information on government computing.
