This section provides guidance and good practice for your borough at all times throughout the year. It is about getting your borough in the right place to execute effective procurements and contract management. The first section starts with an introduction to contract registers and building procurement roadmaps. The second and third are focused on how you can engage deeply and regularly with the technology supplier market, especially with startups and SMEs. And the fourth introduces the idea of cross-borough collaboration: a theme that will be picked up again many times throughout this toolkit.
