I have posted here before and I’ve been told this is mostly a euro-centric discourse forum but I was still curious to know:
Has anyone done/seen tech work done for government/civic tech before?
In the US the vast majority of our tech work is done by private companies. This is sorta problem. It even has a catchy nick name: Beltway Bandits.
More and more of the tech industry is dominated by giant FAANG companies. But this seems like a place that’s rich in possibility.
I work in civic tech. I like my company. But I would like someday to work in a worker coop and I think that structure would actually be ideal for producing better civic technology.
Anybody seen or done this before? I mean internationally though I would def appreciate hearing from Americans who are familiar with the federal procurement system in particular.
