same here, was in some public sector agencies and faang (not pure SWE). would say that GovTech is by far the most technical ones based on my exp. but even within GovTech there are the more "technical" departments eg. OGP, GDS

for TAP: the SWEs I interacted with are very technically competent, however am not sure if they do manage vendors. at least in my previous team, we built everything in-house... but ymmv
