Daisy Group has been selected as one of the 14 organisations to deliver Communication Services within the Government Procurement Service's Public Services Network (PSN) Services Framework.
The PSN framework is a ‘network of networks' that enables the delivery of public services from any location by any provider across central government departments, non-departmental public bodies, the NHS, local authorities and voluntary sector charities.
A position on the framework is only awarded if a number of stringent obligations are met. These obligations cover governance, technical interoperability, service management, commercial approach and information assurance. Daisy is one of only 14 suppliers who will be able to deliver Communication Services under the framework agreement. These services include traditional and IP based voice services, internet services, hosting, co-location, audio conferencing and system maintenance.
The framework is set to run for an initial two year term with two one-year extension options.
Matthew Riley, Chief Executive Officer of Daisy Group plc, said: "We are delighted to have been successful in gaining a place on the PSN Services framework for the next two years. This not only gives Daisy Group the opportunity to be one of only a small number of companies tendering for a significant pool of contracts, but also illustrates that the services we provide meet the standards that the PSN sets.
"We look forward to being an integral part of the Government's drive to reduce costs and revolutionise the way in which the Public Services accesses ICT services."
"IP telephony and SIP are now widely accepted. The connectivity has become more affordable and businesses are moving key services to the cloud. We see a majority of new RFPs requesting hosted."
