YPO, one of the UK’s largest publicly-owned buying organisation, has announced the launch of its Data Centres, Maintenance Cloud Hosting and Security framework for the public sector.

The new framework has been created to ensure data can be stored compliantly and accessed across several locations - either on premise, off premise or via the cloud. Utilising data centres and cloud technology is expected to support organisation within local government and education sectors, especially those operating across large estates and multiple sites.

The framework, estimated to have a total value of £400m, is now live and will run until 31 July 2023.

Sarah Sesum, Category Manager for ICT at YPO, said: “We’re excited to be bringing the latest data technology to the public sector and know the significant benefits this can bring. Organisations in local government and education sectors will often naturally span large estates so it is integral that their data can be stored effectively and can be accessed in a timely manner. Working closely with our supplies, we intend to provide tailored data solutions for many years to come.”
