The Network Services agreement, RM1045, provides public sector customers with continued access to networks and telecommunications services, including PSN compliant services. It will deliver savings, choice and flexibility for all publicly funded organisations; whilst ensuring compliance with the wider government technology strategy through Crown Commercial Service's ongoing engagement with the Government Digital Service (GDS).
The agreement replaces three existing arrangements: RM860 PSN Connectivity, RM1498 PSN Services and RM1035 Telephony Services; and provides a path for customers to migrate services from a number of legacy in-scope arrangements.
