Following its successful reappointment to G-Cloud, Redcentric has confirmed that it has won a place on the government’s £5bn Network Services 2 purchasing framework.
Redcentric has been successful in the 6 lots that have been awarded including Lot 1, Data Access Services. Three further lots have still to be awarded. Redcentric’s inclusion on Lot 1 is testimony to its capacity, capability, calibre and competitiveness.
The framework replaces Network Services 1 and, like its predecessor will be used by all the UK public sector, associated bodies and agencies, the voluntary sector, charities and private companies acting on behalf of the public sector to deliver public services.
With the onus on digital transformation, efficiency and innovation, Network Services 2 has been designed to better support public sector organisations as they transition: a richer service portfolio and wider choice of approved suppliers should drive flexibility, cost-efficiency and speed of procurement.
Redcentric has qualified to supply (with three lots still to be awarded):
- Lot 1 – Data Access Services
- Lot 2 – Local Connectivity Services
- Lot 3 – Traditional Telephony Services
- Lot 4 – Inbound Telephony Services
- Lot 8 – Video Conferencing Services
- Lot 9 – Audio Conferencing Services
Brendan Lynch, Redcentric’s Group Sales and Marketing Director commented:
“Redcentric has a great track record of supporting the Crown Commercial Service in its drive for collaboration, consolidation and modernisation. We’ve proven ourselves over many years on PSN, G-Cloud and HSCN and this award takes us to another level.
We have the ability to compete with Tier 1 providers – this has been recognised with a place on Lot 1 of the framework. The voice and collaboration services available through Lots 3, 4, 8 and 9 enable us to be a strategic partner for organisations across the public sector.
Redcentric is focused on helping organisations get real value from their networking investments as they focus on digital transformation, efficiency and innovation.”
