The Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the LAs across GM currently run ICT services over a combination of WAN's utilising a wide range of underlying connectivity circuits. To improve the value, flexibility, and future-proofing of these arrangements, the LAs are looking to procure the design, implementation, maintenance and support, including a minimum 20 year right of use of dark fibre connectivity, or dark fibre virtual equivalent circuits. This will provide unlimited capacity dedicated fibre connectivity to as many LA public sites and assets in the region. The LAs will continue to be able to procure their WAN connectivity through existing Suppliers when required. These services will be delivered over the connectivity achieved through this contract. As a guide the LFFN Programme will connect over 1 300 public sector assets by full fibre, inc over 600 public buildings and sites, 33 F&RS sites and 700 UTMC assets and will be funded through Government Grant and local contributions.
