Leading UK Enterprise IT firm Future Generation Solutions (FGSL) has been selected by the Crown Commercial Service to support the £240m National Technology Services Framework Agreement for the UK.
The agreement has been developed in collaboration with the Government Digital Service (GDS) as an enabler for public sector organisations to take significant steps towards the “Digital by Default” agenda. Its primary purpose is to provide technology services to central government, local authorities and NHS trusts. The agreement provides access to specialist suppliers who can provide the services under individual lots, as well as suppliers who can provide multiple services across a number of lots facilitated by means of a collaboration agreement.
FGSL have been awarded Lot 5 within this framework agreement, Infrastructure and platform, maintenance and support, which includes, but is not limited to, the following:
• Platform Support and Maintenance: Incorporating management of hardware and software architecture, operating systems, databases, application services and middle-ware products
• Break-fix services for a broad range of vendor server and storage technologies
• All library infrastructure hardware and software operations: Including server and storage systems and support production applications - whether open source, developed in-house, or third party.
It is expected that government, local authorities and NHS Trusts across the UK will commission more than £7.2 billion of work through the providers appointed to the commercial vehicle over the next four years. Simon Bright, CEO of FGSL said “We provide enterprise IT solutions to Blue Chip and Public Sector organisations alike and our scale and experience in the technology market means that we are well placed to deliver the breadth of work on this agreement. FGSL’s track record of delivering innovative services for end users speaks for itself.”
“These agreements are not easy to win as each company bidding for the framework agreement is heavily scrutinised and have to comply to many factors so it is testament to our good business foundation that we have been selected” he added.
