Two days ago the government announced, "a 2-way commitment, called the supplier standard, to build and support collaborative and constructive relationships between government and the tech industry....In his remarks, the minister reiterated the government's ongoing commitment to move away from large-scale, long-term IT contracts towards more agile and transparent interactions focused on joint delivery. He emphasises that government is open for business and wants to work with suppliers of all sizes to build or buy the right things, the the right ways, to deliver world-class services for citizens."
We think the plain English translation of this is that more SMEs will get more chances to get government work. As Be_IT is a Crown Commercial Services Supplier we have only one word to add. Good!
