We're please to announce that Keysource has secured a place as a key supplier on the Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation (YPO) Data Centres, Maintenance Cloud Hosting and Security Framework agreement.

The framework runs from 06 August 2019 - 31 July 2023 and is made up of 12 ‘lots’ that offer the public sector and educational institutions the capability to achieve maximum uptime and security of their data centre and associated applications.

With national coverage, Keysource have been awarded the following specialist lots:

  • Audit & Consultancy
  • Design
  • Build including Modular and Installation Services
  • Facilities Maintenance of Mechanical and Electrical Infrastructure
  • Managed Service
  • Colocation / Shared Hosting services

Digitisation is driving change across all businesses and technology procurement plays a vital part in both innovation, cost savings and security. The YPO agreements are designed to make procurement of public sector technology services simpler by vetting suppliers, reducing research time and delivering value for money.

The organisation supplies products and services to over 30,000 customers including schools, local authorities, charities, emergency services, public sector and other businesses such as nurseries and care homes. It is 100% publicly owned by 13 local authorities.

The YPO’s vision is ‘that every public sector organisation achieves the best possible value for money when procuring its goods and services.’

Stephen Whatling, Managing Director of Keysource said:

“We are really proud to have won a position on this framework. Our experience in the public sector, and across education and healthcare has enabled us to deliver specialist data centre consultancy and deployment and operations across the UK. This framework win is further proof of the capabilities of our team and will allow public sector organisations to take advantage of our range of expertise.”
