Executive summary

The GLA is redeveloping the London.gov.uk website in order to better fulfil its online communication objectives with Londoners. In order to deliver the project, additional staff are being hired to support the project, which in turn requires that they have the same high specification computers and specialist software as the rest of the GLA Web Team in order to execute the project tasks.

The hardware and specialist software are not in the standard GLA IT catalogue, and therefore not covered under the Technology Group’s service provision. Procurement for this equipment and software will be through the existing approved supplier on the framework.
