About LOTI

The London Office of Technology and Innovation (LOTI) was founded in July 2019.

LOTI is a membership organisation, hosted by London Councils, that helps London borough councils and the GLA work together to bring the best of technology, data and innovation to improve public services and outcomes for Londoners.

Our main community is made up of London local government’s Chief Digital, Information and Innovation officers (CDIOs) and their technology, digital and data teams. However, with our mission to improve services and outcomes for Londoners, we also work regularly with colleagues from service and policy areas like Environment, Social Care and Housing.

We do four main things with and for our community: 

1 – We share knowledge – for example through reports, guides and workshops

2 – We build capacity – helping boroughs with their recruitment and training

3 – We run projects – some very experimental, while others aim to scale good practice

4 – We influence change – we build partnerships with key organisations from central government departments to TechUK and aim to speak with one voice on behalf of our members.
