Government Network Services 2 Framework is now live
Following supplier engagement sessions earlier this year, the CCS has launched the Network Services 2 Framework.
The Crown Commercial Service recently (10 December 2018) announced that the Network Services 2 Framework has gone live. The framework is for the provision of telecommunications and network services. It is for use by central Government departments and the wider public sector (including agencies and arms-length-bodies). And it includes the provision of Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) services through supporting infrastructure.
techUK is pleased to have supported the CCS on their supplier engagement in the build up to rolling out this framework. The framework agreement’s lots have been expanded since the first iteration, while retaining ease of use, to allow a broader range of small and medium-sized suppliers on board. Telecom service providers bothlarge and small are now encouraged to compete for a place on the new framework. You can find more information on the framework, and register for the upcoming supplier walk-through webinars, here.
Announcing the new framework, Ieuan Trigger, Crown Commercial Service’s Category Director for Networks, said: “Network Services 2 is a flagship agreement for Crown Commercial Service, due not only to its financial scale, but also its ambition. This agreement has been designed collaboratively with customers, suppliers and industry bodies; it aims to be a catalyst which will drive transformation within government and the wider public sector.”
