North awarded £7m managed service contract

North has been awarded a £7m contract extension from the City of York Council to provide a fully managed service to 27 local authority schools and the Council’s Corporate Estate.

The 10-year partnership will see North oversee the installation of a range of security measures across the network, new digital tools to allow both internal and external threats to be monitored, and a new connectivity solution.

Mark Lowe, Business Development Director at North, said: “Digital services have become the essential foundation to deliver enhanced public services across local government with a blended-online approach now commonly adopted in workplaces.

“North will ensure the most advanced infrastructure is established across the City of York’s estate and local schools, facilitating a hybrid working approach that fits the needs of the Council for years to come, while enhancing the education environment for pupils.”
