The ICT Services Framework has been designed to help local authorities, regional broadband consortia, school consortia and academy trusts to purchase ICT. The framework agreement comprises two lots:
- lot 1 focuses on infrastructure and mobile connectivity services, enabling customers to buy these services individually or in combination as a bundle;
- lot 2 covers the provision of integrated ICT services aimed at supporting those customers who require a framework supplier who can coordinate and manage a supply chain effectively to cover all of their requirements.
The framework replaces the original Becta Infrastructure Services Framework.
