Like most areas of the public sector, local government ICT will be profoundly affected by Brexit. On issues including workforce, cyber-security and procurement, it is crucial that those working in local government ICT consider the implications and plan accordingly.

Join our Breakfast Briefing on 30th January for an up to date brief on the latest developments in local government ICT after Brexit. Hear from Ruby Dixon (Senior Policy Advisor Efficiency & Accountability, Local Government Policy, Department for Communities and Local Government) and Matt Prosser (Chief Executive, Dorset Councils Partnership & Digital Lead, Solace), alongside other sector leaders to hear how they are actively planning for a post-Brexit landscape.

Key Issues to be Addressed Include:

  • State of play: how have local government ICT leaders responded to Brexit
  • The transfer of EU laws and regulation
  • Assessing the impact on third party engagement and procurement frameworks
  • Strategies to guarantee the required workforce: migration and future skills
  • Responding in a period of reduced funding
