Public sector IT services

IT in the public sector is a priority investment area that we have seen huge growth in over the last five years. This has been fuelled by our passion for IT service excellence and exceptional solution knowledge that has earned us an enviable reputation for the provision of public sector solutions.

Softcat’s commitment to the public sector has been demonstrated through a substantial investment of time and resource to secure places on several of the most high-profile national procurement frameworks. We provide a complete range of IT solutions under these frameworks, offering a variety of hardware, software and specialist Information Assurance services for our MOD clients, along with a portfolio of more typical services for all areas of the public sector.

The latter half of 2014 proved to be a pivotal time for Softcat's growth, following significant changes to the public sector procurement landscape. Outgoing procurement frameworks included CITHS, ITHS, SPRINT II and the MOD's Information Assurance framework, which were initially replaced by the brand new Technology Products (RM1054) framework. After successfully securing a broad footing on the inaugural Technology Products framework, Softcat's public sector prowess was further reinforced after winning places on five out of the six lots available under the replacement Technology Products 2 (RM3733) framework in the closing months of 2016.

With this announcement Softcat is now delighted to be able to comprehensively service the IT requirement of the UK's Defence and Blue Light services. Also accredited with many of the UK's professional buying organisations (PBOs) we now deliver solutions right across the public sector including:
