Future Service Programme Supplier Engagement Event
This is a notice to invite interested Suppliers to attend a Supplier Engagement Day where we will provide information on our IT transformation programme as well as the future opportunities associated with the programme.
"NHS England via the Future Services Programme (FSP) will replace its existing outsourced ICT services on a phased basis over the period up to 2021 based on an in-house SIAM model.
The existing ICT landscape is varied. With over 12,000 users of ICT and representation across 5 consuming healthcare family organisations the current services are underpinned by two expiring incumbent supplier contracts.
With the Service Desk procurement currently live in the marketplace, FSP is preparing to re-procure the remaining elements of its ICT services, disaggregating its existing services and replacing them with a multi-supplier model. Key GDS and CCS principles such as Cloud First and purchasing via frameworks will be core to FSP's procurement approach with the core services to be procured being Networks, End User Computing, Hosting, Managed Print, Unified Communications and Application Support.
A supplier engagement event is being planned for Tuesday 19th November 2019 for prospective suppliers to gain a deeper understanding of the Authority's objectives and future requirements, the opportunities which this Programme offers, the existing application and infrastructure estate and an outline of planned timescales including the transition of services.
The event will be held in Leeds and suppliers and will commence at 10am.
