Network Services framework is designed to help UK Public Sector Buyers to buy a wide range of telecommunications related solutions.
Network Services Framework (RM1045) allows UK Public Sector Buyers to buy a wide range of telecommunications related solutions. The current (and first iteration) of the framework was awarded in July 2015.
The framework is divided into 10 Lots:
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.

Advice Cloud were always professional, diligent and focused on the job in hand. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Chris and Advice Cloud to anyone considering selling services into the public sector.
Advice Cloud has a 100% success rate across all the frameworks we work with. We are providing registration and application support for the Network Services Framework. The framework has a two year life-cycle (with the option to extend for up to two years). Market engagement for the second iteration of Network Services has now started with a series of customer engagement webinars. The OJEU is expected in late 2018.
However, if you are interested in supplying your network services to the Public Sector before then, you may want to consider the upcoming procurement framework HSCN Access Services. HSCN Access Services is currently in development and sits with the Network Services framework.
