Sedgemoor District Council

Outcome of Expression of Interest: Not shortlisted

Digital Components 

We are procuring a ‘Digital Platform’ upon which we will redesign each of our customer facing, internal, and partner processes. Key to our specification has been a set of ‘digital components’ that we require that the platform either has, or can reach out to.

This has resulted in a map of the common components which are typically embedded and repeated across proprietary systems.

We want to discover

  • which are the most re-usable commodity components – for example
    • Workflow
    • Customer Index
    • Data Matching
    • Consent Bank
    • Records Management
  • what are the existing data standards and APIs that would make these components interoperable;
  • where are new standards required;
  • how might a market for components be established;
  • how ready are suppliers of proprietary products to componentise their offerings, and reduce the need for a council to repeatedly purchase the same functionality for each service area;
  • the potential for savings and efficiency for a council adopting selected components.

We would expect to engage with

  • iStandUK and councils who are subscribers
  • TechUK
  • Digital leadership training (for council leaders, service managers or senior executives)
  • Introduction to user research
  • Introduction to service design
  • Agile for teams

Other training requests

The Council has already trained a number of staff to DSDM Agile practitioner level. We would like to re-inforce that with ‘GDS Agile Teams’ training and tools to ensure that we can collaborate with other teams.
