|Education Authority (EA) – Education Technology Services (ETS) Programme Update
||In these unprecedented times it is important to provide an update on the Education Technology Services Programme. As you are aware part of this Programme of work seeks to deliver the replacement Education Network (NI) / C2K service in schools.
The EA has developed an Outline Business Case (OBC) which has explored the options for scope, procurement and delivery of a new Education Technology Service for schools. The OBC is currently subject to approvals. The timeline for procurement is unknown at present due to the impact Covid 19 may have and the contingency plans currently in place across the education sector. In the meantime, every effort is being made to push forward with the development of ETS and we will provide a further update upon OBC approval.
When EA are in a position to do so the ETS team will reach out to the market and plan information sessions for suppliers wishing to participate in the procurement processes.
We want to take the opportunity to thank you for the continued support and patience during this time of additional challenge and we hope you stay safe and healthy in the weeks ahead.
