TalkTalk Communications Ltd. announced that the company won a GBP 2 billion (initial estimated total value excluding VAT) multiple awardees contract award from The Minister for the Cabinet Office acting through Crown Commercial Service to provide innovative connectivity, telecommunications and other services. The above public sector bodies have a need for the provision of connectivity, telecommunications and other services, including PSN compliant services and non PSN compliant services, to facilitate inter-organizational collaboration through secure communication, interoperability and sharing of information. This Framework Agreement addressed this need by facilitating the provision of innovative connectivity and telecommunications and other services for the UK public sector as a whole. The services made available under the Framework Agreement include data access services; local connectivity services; traditional telephony services; inbound telephony services; IP-telephony solutions; mobile, voice and data services; paging services; video conferencing; audio conferencing; and integrated communications services.

The Framework Agreement is suitable for the provision of services that are PSN compliant; and also for the provision of services at lower security levels; or that do not require PSN compliance. The services are required to be provided primarily to the UK, although the Framework Agreement may also be used by UK contracting authorities to service their overseas sites including Europe, United States (US) and Rest of the World (RoW).
