Programme Athena

  • By London Councils

The purpose of this programme is to lay the foundations to create a single ICT platform for London public sector organisations to gain the opportunity and ability to deliver significant efficiencies and service improvements for ICT enabled support service functions such as Finance and HR. This will fulfil local needs and demands and maximise the opportunities that exist through joint supplier management.

All London Local Authorities and the SLT are involved in the project.
