Spark will allow public sector customers to assess the newest tech and drive innovation in the public services delivery. Its flexibility and agility will meet governments and the market’s needs and open opportunities for small and medium sized suppliers. It will also give customers flexibility and filter opportunities by interests, which should save time for smaller suppliers.
