A single framework agreement
RECOMMENDATION 20: A SINGLE FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT
Sufficient public funding should be provided to cover the core operating costs of the NBN Trust and its network of National and Regional Hubs, Super Partners and community groups in perpetuity where these are providing public services as a public good in support of the National Outcomes for Scotland.
As originally recommended in response to Public Petition PE1229, Scottish Government should become the key subscriber to the NBN on behalf of the Scottish public sector. New funding should be made available through a single Framework Agreement with the Lead Governance Body (i.e. NBN Trust). Such a Framework Agreement should run to 2030 in the first instance, with a review point in 2025.
