DESCRIPTION: If we are going to build a government tech market for the digital age, we must clarify a set of standards that support the kinds of inter-operable, sustainable, resilient technologies we value. How should people procuring technology for government at the state and local levels think about selecting contractors/ suppliers? Using a values-based approach, we'll workshop a set of baseline evaluation criteria and explore contracting strategies- with the goals of supporting accountable and efficient procurement, preventing bad actors from abusing the public trust, foregrounding companies who make commitments to ethical services, and broadening the vendor pool to include startups and small businesses.
