Tackling the challenges of public sector technology procurement

The CIPFA CPRAS Technology Procurement Association (CCTPA) is a collaboration between The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) and the Cost and Procurement Advisory Service (CPRAS). CCTPA’s purpose is to help public sector bodies identify and procure innovative hi-tech solutions through our secure procurement platform. By working with us, we can help you reduce procurement costs and risk, as well as save valuable time, increase efficiencies and deliver value to tax payers.

Now you can benefit from CCTPA’s expertise and knowledge of frontier technology

What problems are you facing in your organisation? Could technology such as blockchain, artificial intelligence or machine learning help you tackle them? Frontier technologies provide public sector bodies with a wide range of new services and innovative solutions. 

From payment and payroll systems through to pothole repairs and environmental solutions – hi-tech is playing its part to help cost savings across the public sector and, as a result, improve services and outcomes for communities.

How does CCTPA work?

CCTPA provides:

  • A secure procurement platform through which public sector organisations can safely and confidently procure frontier-tech solutions via framework agreements which CCTPA have negotiated with private sector organisations.
  • A bespoke procurement service whereby we will help you develop your own frameworks.
  • An events and networking programme through which you can access thought leadership, best practice and advice.
