Programme Delivery Model

Broadband Delivery Programme

    • Ensure that small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and local suppliers can partake in the delivery of local broadband solutions.

      • 4.4.2

        Principle 11: Maximise competition where appropriate:

        • Ensure a level playing field where possible to allow competition between suppliers within or across regions where there is capability and capacity and appetite in the marketplace

          • including SMEs and community suppliers as appropriate;

        • Where one supplier has a temporary or permanent competitive advantage that is detrimental to the market place adapt the sourcing strategy accordingly;

        • Avoid the creation of local monopolies where this would restrict competition in consumer choice and pricing; and

        • Work with Ofcom to influence the regulatory environment as appropriate.

      • 4.4.3

        Principle 12: Minimise aggregate transaction and delivery costs for the public and private sectors:

    • Promote materials and processes which minimise individual procurement costs;

    • Help aggregate requirements on a cross locality basis where possible to minimise the number of procurements, while still responding to local needs and ensuring solutions are acceptable to stakeholders;

    • Promote application of off-the-shelf products and business-as-usual processes for the supply chain as much as possible; and

    • Facilitate the repeatability of projects.

      • 4.4.4

        Principle 13: Achieve appropriate and affordable outcomes:

        • Seek optimal risk allocation between the public and private sector, while ensuring that it is acceptable and deliverable;

        • Provide funding towards capital expenditure only. Ensure that solutions are economically viable and commercially sustainable in the long term; and

        • Ensure solutions deliver what the end customer needs and will pay for and that suppliers can deliver.

      • 4.4.5

        Principle 14: Maintain compliance with regulations:

        • Ensure consistency with State Aid regulations; and
