Public Sector Tech Group

SCL’s Public Sector Tech Group aims to work with key organisations across the public sector to craft content, events, training and discussion groups with a view to tackling the unique way in which government and its wider public bodies interact with technology. We seek to fill a regular slot within SCL publications and organise specific events for both public sector organisations and those many industries and suppliers working with them.
