Monday saw the pivotal Government announcement of the ICT suppliers chosen to supply Public Services Network (PSN) services under the new Services Framework. BT is delighted to have been awarded a place in eight of the categories that make up the new framework.
This follows BT’s success in selection as a supplier for the PSN Connectivity Framework in March 2012.
Providing the foundations of the Government’s ICT strategy
Described as the ‘network of networks’ to provide an assured network for the public sector to share services (including many GCloud services), PSN will open up new vistas of efficiency and collaboration for users.
As official suppliers of eight Lots within the Supplier Framework, BT can now supply its entire core portfolio of services to central and local government, the NHS, voluntary organisations and other public sector bodies.
Committed to helping the public sector get the most out of IT
Neil Rogers, President, Global Government, BT Global Services, said: “We’re very proud of BT’s role in helping develop and implement the Government’s vision for IT, so we’re naturally delighted to be on both PSN Frameworks. This means that as well as helping major government departments like HMRC and the Ministry of Justice connect to the PSN, we can make our nationally-available, world-class portfolio available to all public service organisations.”
PSN — BT continuing to invest in the public sector
2012 is the year we’ll really see the transformation start. Now both crucial frameworks — this Services Framework and the Connectivity Framework — are ready to go, BT is looking forward to using innovation to make a real difference to public service delivery.
Craig Eblett, PSN Programme Director, Cabinet Office, said: “I welcome BT’s success in securing a place on both PSN Frameworks. BT recognises the increased competition the Frameworks will bring so I look forward to BT continuing to invest in PSN, delivering savings for the public sector and helping drive innovation.”
BT has been involved in the development of PSN from the very beginning. If you’d like to share in our knowledge or just ask a particular question, please get in touch.
