TNP awarded place on G-Cloud 8 Framework19/09/2016
The move towards using Cloud technology is driving more local authorities to upgrade their networks according to network specialists TNP in Lancaster, which has been awarded a place on the G-Cloud 8 framework to provide Specialist Cloud Services to the public sector.
TNP (The Networking People) can offer professional consultancy which includes advising local authorities on moving to Cloud services, or assessing the Cloud-ready status of their networks.
Ian Anderson, Solutions Architect with TNP, explains: “The award of a place on the G-Cloud 8 framework to provide Specialist Cloud Services reaffirms our commitment to the public sector, which is increasingly turning to the Cloud to improve efficiency and provide more cost effective services.
The configuration of many networks within the public sector and particularly local authorities does not provide the flexible and resilient infrastructure which is required to provide Cloud access across a broad spectrum of users. Our expertise and long experience in the public sector means TNP can assess systems and advise local authorities on how to make their networks more Cloud-friendly.
The G-Cloud 8 framework created by the Crown Commercial Service within its Digital Marketplace supports the Government’s policy to centrally manage the procurement of common goods and services through an integrated commercial function at the heart of government.
It aims to deliver better public services for less cost, and to release savings by implementing technologies that increase public sector productivity and efficiency.
The G-Cloud 8 framework can be used by organisations across the UK public sector including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for- profit organisations.
