In addition, organisations can buy Network Services on behalf of Public Sector organisations via the Agency Services route. This is supplied by the traditional public sector Telcos & Systems Integrators. The ability to appoint an agent to procure on behalf of the public sector provides additional flexibility for complex requirements.
