Phoenix, one of the leading providers of hosting, Cloud, and managed IT services in the UK, has been awarded by Government Procurement Service a Public Services Network (PSN) Services framework agreement for two lots.
The PSN has been designed to provide a single network and marketplace for public-sector communications, bringing suppliers and customers together to operate, share and deliver services across traditional departments and regional boundaries at substantially reduced costs.
Twenty-nine suppliers have been named on the new framework being established by the Government Procurement Service, which was tendered last year. The suppliers will provide a range of services including CCTV, physical security monitoring and mobile services. With a network infrastructure that is ultimately reliable and flexible Phoenix has won a place on Lot Four ‘Managed Equipment Room Services’ as well as Lot eight ‘LAN Services.’
The award of the PSN Services Framework Agreement follows on from Phoenix being awarded to supply Cloud services under the Government’s G-Cloud framework for public sector suppliers. As a result of having both agreements in place, Phoenix is now ideally placed to showcase its presence within the public sector by offering bespoke services to meet the exact demands of the end-user.
John Hall, Sales & Marketing Director, at Phoenix commented: “The PSN has been created to drive savings and efficiencies by removing duplicate network connections, providing simpler procurement and greater competition, and allowing public sector employees to work in more flexible, user-focused ways. It will drive efficiencies in procurement, through a range of technical and service standards, which will lead to an open, collaborative environment for all UK Public Sector employees. Being selected to supply managed equipment room services and LAN services Lots for the PSN, demonstrates the strength of Phoenix’s offering and ability to provide bespoke, flexible and scalable solutions. As a result, we are able to deliver more cost-effective solutions to the public sector enabling modern public services.”
Hall continued: “Being named as one of the 29 suppliers of the PSN Services framework agreement is a true testament to the work we do here at Phoenix and we will continually strive to achieve the best for our customers.”
