Buckinghamshire council seeks managed ICT deal

£100m pork cloud in the offing

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Buckinghamshire County Council has invited tenders for a wide range of managed ICT services which will be underpinned by the Public Services Network (PSN).

The four-year framework deal is worth between £20m and £100m and has been published by Buckinghamshire on behalf of itself and local authorities in adjacent counties and Greater London.

According to a notice in the Official Journal of the European Union, the scope of the contract will include the implementation and maintenance of wide and local area networks, CCTV, traffic management systems, public information systems, unified communications systems, plus management and associated services

The service provided will need to comply with the PSN initiative, as well as requirements published by the Cabinet Office, in particular the public sector network framework. The notice indicates that Buckinghamshire is keen to use the deal to move closer to managed or hosted cloud services. The council has a history of working closely with neighbouring local authorities including Aylesbury, South Bucks, Wycombe and Buckinghamshire councils and Milton Keynes Fire Authority.
