This is the latest instalment of an exclusive feature analysing the UK’s biggest public sector tech deals. In partnership with data analysis firm Tussell, we drill down into the top five most valuable tenders and awards from the previous week, and take stock of which tech firms have won the biggest share of the public sector pie.
Top five tenders
It’s been a relatively quiet week for tenders, perhaps unsurprisingly for late August. The biggest of the week comes from the University of East Anglia, which is looking to spend £900,000 on upgrading its library management system. Businesses have until 26 September to bid for the deal and be prepared to carry out the work next summer.
