Companies seeking large contracts with local or central Government will soon have to add boosting IT services to the plethora of social policies (including apprenticeships, wage equality and gender equality) that they have to deliver beyond their core offer if they are to win public procurement bids. The Treasury’s instructions to Andrew Andonis’s National Infrastructure Commission give a hint of what’s to come:
“The Commission will advise the Government and its recommendations will underpin the Government’s 5G strategy, which will be announced in spring 2017.”
We expect all big public sector tenders (including those procuring beyond explicit IT and comms needs) will require a contribution to 5G infrastructure within the next two years. The first companies to adapt to this upcoming change will enjoy significant commercial advantages in terms of market share in the public sector.
