The Network Services 2 Framework (RM3808) is for the provision of telecommunication and network services by the UK public sector, their associated bodies and agencies, the voluntary sector and charities.

This Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework provides access to specialist suppliers who can deliver services from 13 categories, of which Cantium Business Solutions was successfully appointed as a supplier for seven. You can find out more about how Cantium was approved as a supplier on the Network Services 2 framework.

Available Services

Cantium Business Solutions have been successfully appointed as a supplier for the following categories:

  • Data Access Services
  • Local Connectivity Services
  • Traditional Telephony Services
  • Inbound Telephony Services
  • IP Telephony Services
  • Mobile Voice and Data Services
  • Unified Communications

How to Buy Our Services on Network Services 2

Under the framework, there are currently two procurement tendering options available to obtain our services: a direct award catalogue or via a competitive tender process.

Direct Award

To avoid the time-consuming process of a formal tender process, you can issue a direct award on this framework. It is possible to direct award from any lot on the framework, with the exception of the products and services on lot 10 (Unified Communications).

This option should be used when the solution from one provider fully meets your requirements at the right cost.

To direct award our services on this framework, the following conditions must be met:

  • Have a clear understanding of the services you require
  • Not involve a complex solution
  • Purchase from the structured catalogue format (Service Offers)
  • Mandatory Deliverables required
  • Standard call off terms required
  • Total contract value of up to and including £1.5m Access our services via the Crown Commercial Service Government eMarketplace.

Not the right framework for you? If you are unable to meet the above criteria or cannot locate the services you require, visit our Frameworks page to help you find the most appropriate framework (link to frameworks page) for your organisation to obtain our services.

Further Competition

Further competition helps you to amend or refine a broader range of the template call-off terms and conditions, giving you more flexibility when defining your statement of requirements.

  • Should be run when your specification covers multiple lots of the RM3808 agreement
  • Should be used when you need suppliers to develop proposals or solutions to meet your statement of requirements
