Words from a supplier

Big Blue Door is a Drupal agency supplier working with a number of councils to build and maintain their LocalGov Drupal sites.

They explain why they use LocalGov Drupal and some of the benefits. 

 

How to become a supplier member

To ensure that our council members receive the best possible service we screen applications from suppliers before we allow membership.

Suppliers should be working with, and be recommended by a LocalGov Drupal council. In some circumstances we also consider those who have a client using LocalGov Drupal or have a potential client with LocalGov Drupal

In addition, all suppliers need to:

  • provide councils with the features and flexibility to meet user needs
  • be backed by excellent customer service and documentation
  • be fairly priced, and straightforward to start using
  • provide comprehensive APIs as standard, not as an add-on
  • adhere to the GOV.UK technology code of practice
