Build a business case: developing custom apps

Six companies have been chosen to supply broadband services, kit and consultancy to the public sector.

BT, Easynet, Fujitsu, Kingston, Synetrix and Telewest have all been selected by the Government's procurement outfit, the Office of Government Commerce (OGC), as part of its Broadband Solutions Framework Agreement.

In essence, the "framework agreement" has been set up to help public sector bodies jump on the broadband bandwagon by using companies already vetted by the OGC.

Said OGC boss Peter Gershon in a statement: "This new arrangement will be of major benefit to those government departments who are seeking to develop the use of Broadband.

"It reduces the time and effort required in sourcing broadband products by offering quality goods and services at value for money prices without the need for separate tendering processes." ®
