O2 and NS2 – We’re open for business

Matt Spencer, O2’s Head of Public Sector Sales, shares good news for all of our Public Sector, charity and voluntary sector customers 

Today I’m really pleased to announce that O2 has been awarded supplier status on the Network Services 2 (NS2) Framework from the CCS (Crown Commercial Service). It means that our public sector customers can now access a complete range of digital solutions through NS2 (the replacement for the NSF and legacy PSN and Telephony Services frameworks). 

I’ve been at O2 for just over a year now, and whenever I’ve met with public sector customers, it has been frustrating to hear that they haven’t always been able to purchase the integrated services they want from us. Well not any more. I’m pleased to say that with NS2, we are open for business and ready to support our customers with our complete portfolio on their digital transformation journey. 

O2 was successfully awarded a place on the following lots: 

  • Lot 1 Data Access Services, WAN 
  • Lot 2 Local Connectivity Services, LAN 
  • Lot 3 Traditional Telephony Services 
  • Lot 4 Inbound Telephony Services 
  • Lot 6 Mobile Voice & Data Services 
  • Lot 7 Paging and Alerting Services 
  • Lot 8 Video-conferencing Services 
  • CCS expects to award Lots 5, 10 and 13 in due course. 

As you are probably aware, the new £5 billion NS2 (RM3808) framework goes live this month, and is expected to last for the next four years. It enables public sector organisations, associated bodies and agencies, the voluntary sector, charities and private companies acting on behalf of the public sector to work with an approved list of providers in telecommunications and network services.
