North Lincolnshire Broadband Project – Request for information from infrastructure suppliers
North Lincolnshire Council are reaching out to broadband infrastructure suppliers who are operational in the area to better understand the level of broadband access across the area in order to inform future plans.
Data currently held by the council dates back to September 2019, so, as part of an open market review, the council would like to capture current and up-to-date information relating to levels of broadband access across the area and investment planned over the next three years.
This open market review is not currently a precursor to a full procurement or public consultation, however, if a full procurement is a requirement in the future, all respondents to the open market review will have the opportunity to validate any outcomes determined by information received. In addition, North Lincolnshire Council would invite all stakeholders (e.g. including the public, businesses, internet service providers and broadband infrastructure operators) to provide feedback about the proposed eligible areas being considered for investment at this stage.
Next steps – please review the Open Market Review document [PDF, 378Kb] and respond before 17 April 2021 11:59pm.
A template is available for responses. In order for suppliers to access this, a Public Sector Geospatial Agreement licence will need to be granted. This can be requested by completing the PSGA-contractor-licence-form [Doc, 101Kb] and returning it to firstname.lastname@example.org Officers will send the template, containing premises information, once the licence has been granted.
