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
