SFT Outcomes
Demonstrating progress
with impact

Programme and project procurement and delivery is effective, with highly skilled teams deployed where they are needed

  • Over £3.6bn of ongoing investment in 18 infrastructure programmes involving SFT
  • Continued to support public bodies in the early stages of challenging projects, helping to improve their approach, and set projects up for success

Infralink is a programme the Digital Connectivity team developed and is based on the known challenges that exist between the public sector and the mobile industry.

The team used its industry and technical knowledge to develop programmes the market will respond to and which will have a clear impact on communities and future investment plans.

In helping local authorities improve their digital connectivity by better engagement with the mobile industry, the team further developed and updated its Infralink-Exchange Playbook.

The Playbook is regarded as a ‘how-to’ guide that helps councils begin a project to improve mobile connectivity through commercial and GIS-based transformation.

The impact of our work alongside that of our partners in this area, is further illustrated through this selection of case studies.
