We are pleased to announce that Scottish Procurement have awarded a new multi-supplier framework for Hosting Services.
The framework offers a range of Hosting services including:
- Public Cloud
- Private Cloud
- Community Cloud
- Hybrid Could
- Enablement Services
This is expected to create significant savings for Scottish public sector organisations whilst delivering services capable of meeting high availability and secure requirements. The framework supports the Digital Public Services Strategy for Scotland and in particular the Data Hosting and Data Centre Strategy for the Scottish Public Sector.
Key benefits include:
- value for money savings to be realised through the collaborative use of this framework.
- all of the service providers have secure hosting facilities with security compliance of ISO 27001 and the ability to provide the core services at the Government Security Classification of ‘Official’ (higher and lower levels also available). The majority of Hosting services offered are located in Scotland.
- an excellent range of suppliers from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to large global players, all with a strong economic footprint in Scotland.
- an easy route to market for framework public body organisations following a comprehensive tender exercise, under EU public procurement regulations.
