  • Why is PSN so important for UK government? PSN is the foundation of the government’s ICT strategy, at the heart of shared service and cost reduction agendas. The PSN, which is to be governed by a number of standards and protected by high levels of security will rectify these problems. It will also change the way customers procure products and services, as they will no longer require physical network assets. Instead they will buy services such as storage capacity and software applications as and when required – either alone or combined in packages. The result is flexibility and standardisation, which will together deliver the opportunity for interworking and reduced costs.
  • Drivers - Public Services Network (PSN) is a change programme driven by a need to save money, integrate and join up services. As well as a desire to create new and innovative business opportunities for public service providers and the suppliers of communication services. The Issue - A plethora of public sector telecoms networks have evolved with varying levels of co-ordination. As a result there is a lack of standardisation and variance in costs; interoperability between organisations and sites can be constrained and inflexible. There is duplication of networks and services across the public sector together with an imperative to save money. PSN Objectives Substantially reduce or eliminate duplicated procurements and expenditure on network and associated services Enable anyone connected to PSN to consume any service and access any data that they have the right to from anywhere on PSN Establish a unified market aligned to wider market investments Generate competition and innovation in the provision of public sector telecoms Enable new and creative ways of joining up and delivering shared public services UNCLASSIFIED
  • PSN customers, suppliers and services must meet PSN technical, security and service management standards. By applying a standards based approach, with assurance through a compliance and accreditation regime, PSN will be incrementally delivered. Some core network services either are or will be delivered centrally: GCN, DNS, PKI, Interconnects WANs can connect directly to DNSPs (without going through a PSNSP) Capabilities: GCF MTCF PSN Connectivity PSN Services
  • 2012/13 Benefit realisation – currently standing at £109m – forecast £130m for full year Great news that both PSN Connectivity and Services Frameworks are now operational (Services went live this week) and public sector organisations are already using them. UNCLASSIFIED
