    A unique opportunity has arrived: use digital technology to improve public sector services, win contracts, build business – and along the way make everyone’s life a bit better.

    The CivTech® pilot is harnessing new technologies to drive daring and innovation into the public sector. It brings together private sector innovation, public sector organisations and citizens to develop more efficient and effective products and services, which will translate to new, better, faster and easier experiences for everyone. Backed by the Scottish Government, it’s going to provide an unprecedented route for entrepreneurs, start-ups, SMEs and other businesses to develop the benefits of digital transformation in the public sector. And crucially it’s going to create a swift, secure and practical pathway for those businesses to win public sector contracts.
