Joining Kent’s Public Services together using the latest innovative technologies to save costsand improve IT service delivery across Kent
Public Service Network
The PSN is the government’s high-performance network, which helps public sector organisations work together, reduce duplication and share resources.
It unifies the provision of network infrastructure across the United Kingdom’s public sector into an interconnected “network of networks” to increase efficiency and reduce overall public expenditure.
What is the Kent Public Service Network (KPSN)?
The Kent Public Service Network is a regional PSN providing high quality connectivity to all areas of Kent and Medway.
It is a not-for-profit partnership governed by 24+ partner organisations including Kent County Council, Medway Council as well as numerous Borough and District Councils, and health organisations across Kent.
These organisations are joined together through a secure private infrastructure so that they can connect, communicate and exchange data across the regional network with the necessary security protocols. This enables shared service delivery through a complete infrastructure that is compliant with central government standards and supports collaborative projects across the partnership at a reduced cost.
KPSN has increased ICT capacity, resilience and security to deliver faster, more accessible, and better public services to residents overcoming technological barriers to collaboration.
The KPSN Partnership has:
○ 27 User Organisations
○ 1352 Connected Sites
○ 370,000 Users
