Sophie is a senior public technology contracts expert, with over 20 years’ public projects experience starting in private finance at a global management consultancy.
Sophie works closely with senior public officers responsible for achieving the most economically advantageous, legally robust and lowest risk environments when spending significant amounts of taxpayers' money.
Sophie helps organisations to develop policies and procedures to ensure social value, data protection and crime reduction (for example Modern Slavery, anti-corruption, money laundering, anti-fraud) are embedded into their public procurement practices and make a real positive difference to the lives of those impacted by large complex supply chains.
Over recent years, Sophie has worked on several major technology programmes such as the Police ICT Company (Digital Programmes and central tech purchasing) (2017), the Home Office Emergency Service Networks (2018), the Foreign Office Brexit Deal/No Deal Commercial Operations Risk Planning (2018) and the Met Office Supercomputing2020+ Programme (2019).
Governance structures, market engagement, procurement strategies and the continuous need for transparency and protections, makes this practice area influential and highly significant.
