TechUK and Innopsis are pleased to invite you to take part in an upcoming roundtable discussion with the Government Digital Service to explore the Future Networks for Government Programme.
Time: 10:00 – 12:00
Date: 6th Feb 2020
Venue: techUK, 10 St Bride Street, London EC4A 4AD
The Future Networks for Government Programme (FN4G) is helping public sector organisations move to modern networking solutions and away from the legacy Public Services Network (PSN). The aim of the programme is to move public sector organisations to modern network solutions, away from an expensive and increasingly insecure bespoke legacy network infrastructure. These solutions will offer more competitive commercial terms and give users confidence that their information is appropriately secure.
The programme team, based in GDS, are now embarking upon a technical and commercial consultation process with the network service providers and digital suppliers to help determine the best way forward for the network in the coming years. This roundtable discussion is a chance for industry to share their thoughts and expertise and to help shape the future direction of networks in the public sector.
The programme team will provide an overview of PSN and the FN4G programme, which will then lead into a collaborative discussion to understand if what they are proposing is in line with what others are doing across industry and other sectors. Particular issues for discussion include:
- What challenges are there to moving away from the PSN network model?
- What challenges are there to adopting a modern network equivalent to the PSN (described in https://www.gov.uk/guidance/moving-away-from-legacy-networks)?
- What compliance requirements apply to the new modern networks for government?
- What impact does the retiring of CAS(T) have on future network procurements?
- How can customers be helped to make better buying decisions for networks?
