Scope

This agreement will deliver fibre optic infrastructure and services. It will include both dark fibre and lit services over which public sector organisations and their agents can deliver network services.

The agreement is being developed in coordination with the Department for Culture Media and Sports (DCMS) to provide a route to market for building upgrade projects where funding has been allocated through the Local Full Fibre Network (LFFN) programme. The agreement will be available for the whole of the public sector, regardless of funding source.

We plan to use a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for this agreement. There is also a helpful video on how to use the DPS platform as a supplier here.
