GMP DN - A0981 Mobile Voice and Data

GMP currently procures its mobile voice and data services through A0417 Network Managed Services. That contract allows GMP access to any other better tariff offered by BT without penalty. RM6261 offers GMP savings of approximately £300K per annum on the current billing, with no detriment to the service. The NMS contract could be extended up to 2026. It is recommended that we award a new contract to BT on a 3+1+1+1 basis using CCS RM6261 lot 1. This enables GMP to reduce billing over the term in comparison to if we remained on the NMS contract. It also locks in savings for longer if GMP requires it.
An additional option in the framework is to purchase mobile phones with the cost spread over 3 years at no additional cost. This may provide further cashable savings
