Framework Scope – Network Services 3

The Government, namely the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, are focused on developing networks and the digital infrastructure nationwide. Through projects such as Gigabit and the Shared Rural Network, the ‘National Data Strategy’ can be delivered. Whilst projects have been in place pre-covid, the pandemic has highlighted the importance of a connected Britain. With many forced to learn, work, and socialise through a screen, the need to provide gigabit quality connections to all areas of the country has become even greater. The target for the Gigabit Project has therefore increased by 1,850,000 premises as the government aim to advance the scheme and increase their outreach.

This framework is needed to help the government and Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport achieve their ambitions with the Gigabit Project and the attempt to cover areas with poor or no connections. With the public sectors reliance on high-speed networks, the telecoms and digital infrastructure is unsurprisingly ever-changing. It is due to this constant development that frameworks such as Network Services arise as they provide a hub of suppliers for those requiring upgraded systems. The availability of an improved network for the NHS (HSCN) means the increased demand for electronic prescriptions can be facilitated as the sector adapts to the demands the pandemic has created.
