Consultation description

We are requesting feedback from the PSN community on our proposed approach for replacing the current GCF core services. This GSi Convergence Framework (GCF), which was set up to enable the migration to the Public Services Network (PSN), expires in August 2015. It provides access to a number of essential and add-on services used by most PSN-connected organisations, which are referred to as GCF core services.

We have developed some proposals on how we think these core services could be replaced so that it is simpler and clearer for PSN customers to find and purchase the services they need.

We’re now seeking the views of the PSN community who currently use these services on these proposals.
