Surrey seeks ‘digital transformation partner’
County council seeks external review of existing change plans to ‘help the organisation see that digital is a critical component’
Surrey County Council is seeking a “digital transformation partner” that can help review and accelerate existing plans and programmes for change.
The authority is seeking to engage an external provider for a contract of between three and eight months in length. The chosen firm will have two key areas of focus, the first of which will be “reviewing existing change plans by applying ‘digital’, ‘data’ and ‘agile working’ lenses”, Surrey said.
- Surrey seeks digital leader to help drive £250m annual savings
- Surrey council extends communications network contract with BT
- University of Surrey bags £1.1m to trial blockchain for healthcare, voting and digital archives
Having done so, the transformation partner will be asked to “identify opportunities and the value to implement new service designs, solutions and/or working practices within existing council transformation programme”.
The second area of focus will be to lead workshops dedicated to exploring how the use of digital, data, and agile methods can best support other initiatives and programmes – such as the council’s Surrey Health and Wellbeing strategy.
The chosen supplier, who is expected to be awarded a contract worth between £80,000 and £100,000, will work with the authority’s internal IT and digital staff.
Bids for the work are open until 22 May, and Surrey expects to evaluate four suppliers.
