What it offers

Designed for the education sector this framework offers:

  • Lot 1 - On-premise solutions - IT and network infrastructure that are entirely delivered on-premise and includes but not limited to network and storage hardware, back-up, archiving and data protection systems
  • Lot 2 - Cloud and hybrid cloud solutions - IT infrastructure solutions that are entirely cloud based or a hybrid cloud storage solution, comprising both on-premise and cloud components
  • Lot 3 - Consultancy services - specifically for ICT consultancy and design services where a solution is yet to be defined, which may fit into either lot 1 or 2.
