Headlines • Procurement exercises for interim network and telephony services, based on PSN standards, underway since early part of 2010 (GCF and MTCF frameworks). • PSN underwent the Major Programme Review Process in June/July – it was approved, but encouraged to accelerate the delivery of benefits.

PSN Messages • PSN is still happening, it is not dependent upon other components

PSN Messages • PSN is still happening, it is not dependent upon other components of the ICT strategy, it’s business case stands on it’s own merit. • The definition of ‘What is PSN’ now exists – and has been produced in collaboration between central and local public sectors and the private sector. • You cannot please all of the people all of the time, some compromise is required and some constraints must be imposed – but only where essential • Collaboration will continue – the PSN Authority (PSNA) has specifically designed routes for two-way communication with Suppliers and Consumers – and will listen • The programme remains flexible to change. PSN is designed to evolve, not be static, there is a vision in mind and we won’t get there straight away due to commercial and technical constraints, but we’ve started the journey • Transition has started, the journey will be different for everyone, but some aspects will be the same
