EE has been selected by the Government Procurement Service as one of ten approved providers of fixed-line telephony services under its Telephony Services Framework.
The Framework, formally referred to as RM1035, forms part of the Government’s ICT strategy to migrate public sector organisations to next generation services under the Public Services Network. It enables government departments and local authorities to find cost savings and efficiencies by procuring services from a list of approved providers.
Barry Bolton, Head of Public Sector Marketing at EE, said: “Being awarded a place on the Telephony Services Framework builds on our selection for the Public Services Network last year and demonstrates EE’s capability in delivering public sector services. It is an exciting opportunity for us to develop innovative products and services that provide best value to public sector organisations.”
EE’s selection follows a three-month tendering process, in which Framework Agreements were offered to providers in two lots. Lot 1 covers traditional telephony services, and includes outbound voice services and broadband data services. Lot 2 covers inbound voice services, including non-geographic numbers.
