Capita plc has secured a four-year agreement to deliver network and telecommunications services through the latest framework of YPO, one of the largest public-sector buying organisations in the UK.
The new framework – Network Connectivity and Telecommunications Solutions 976 – will cover sourcing, procurement, delivery and support for the framework’s ‘lots’ that include wide area networks, local area networks, digital fibre infrastructure, smart cities and the internet of things, cyber security, communications services, and mobile, voice and data solutions.
The framework will be open to all public sector organisations, including the police, fire and rescue services and the NHS, and all central government departments, as well as registered charities.
Capita has been delivering network connectivity and telecommunications solutions to public sector organisations for more than 30 years. Earlier this year, Capita became the sole supplier on the ICT Managed Service for Education framework.
Mark Cook, executive officer of Capita’s Technology Solutions division, said: “Capita’s digital capability, and track record in delivering procurement services across the public sector, match perfectly with this new framework. Our digital experience gives us a clear understanding of what organisations need to deliver faster and better services to their communities.”
Robyn Lamport-Rann, category buyer - ICT, YPO, said: “This framework was launched following customer demand for an easy-to-use, compliant route to procuring network and telecommunications services from a single marketplace. It includes all the latest technologies that any organisation will need to transform its services and how it communicates with the public.”
