Croydon Council has appointed Rainmaker as its strategic partner for the ‘Good to Great’ multi-sourcing programme that will implement new ICT capability across the council over the next three years.
The Good to Great Programme recognises the step change in business value the council needs from ICT in the future. It is a key enabler for the council to design effective and efficient ICT solutions that deliver great services to customers, residents and staff, making a real difference to people’s lives.
The Programme’s vision is based around changing the council’s ICT delivery model by moving away from the its current single-supplier ICT contract to a mix of specialist vendors managed by an in-house team. In the process, it plans to change the council’s internal ICT organisation to increase the level of control and accountability for the new supply arrangements. …
