We need financially sustainable, democratically healthy local government. Our residents deserve it, so they have the best opportunities for themselves and their families. Our nation needs it, so that councils can play their full role in returning the economy to growth. This business plan sets out how we can represent the interests and priorities of the authorities – over 400 – who make up our membership, in order to make it a reality. Over the last four years we have made a real difference. We pushed for devolved public health, the integration of health and social care, the Better Care Fund, city and growth deals, and business rate devolution. At the same time in the face of serious financial pressures councils have been extraordinarily successful in spending money smarter. They have prioritised and protected as far as they can the frontline services that people rely on. The fact remains that local government has had to deal with a greater reduction in funding than the rest of the public sector. Many local authorities are concerned about the level of grant they will receive from government in comparison with other councils. We need to equalise the impact of the tough financial climate. If not, it is people who will pay the price whether it is through seeing their local library close, their roads deteriorate or support for young people and families scaled back. With growing demands and less money to go round, local services are facing a cliff-edge. Nowhere is this more starkly apparent than in adult social care. It is a moral imperative that government stops papering over the cracks and properly funds the ever-growing cost of looking after our elderly and disabled residents.

FCW DOD Cloud Workshop: An Evolving Strategy

June 15, 2022 | USA

Just as technology has been constantly changing and evolving, so has DOD’s strategy for the best way to modernize the tools it provides to the warfighters and their business support services. In 2018, the agency released a strategy to use cloud technology, which has been revised over the intervening years to reflect the cancellation of the JEDI contract and the adoption of DOD’s Software Modernization Strategy. The new strategy sets a path for technology and process transformation that uses an enterprise cloud as the way to move to digital and software modernization. In an effort to coordinate and manage multiple cloud efforts, DOD has moved its Cloud Computing Program Office, which manages many cloud projects, to the Defense Information Systems Agency. That office will also handle the program and contracting for the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability program, which replaced JEDI. This event will provide guidance on the many types of DOD Cloud contracts, what’s starting up and what’s ending and the best ways to choose the right vehicle. It will also look at the role cloud technology plays in securing data and the growth of “as-a-service” options.
