AMA: The State of Government-Vendor Relations

It’s a reality of modern government that public institutions and private vendors must work together to deliver and modernize digital services. This raises important questions about public/private co-operation:

How well are our governments doing when it comes to building strong and accountable relationships with vendors?
What does it take to get this relationship right?

Dr. Amanda Clarke (Carleton University) recently completed a research project that investigated IT procurement patterns in the Government of Canada. In this Ask Me Anything session, Amanda will discuss what she learned, and share her perspectives on the things that governments and private sector actors are doing well—and not so well—when they work together in support of digital government reform.
