YPO’s inaugural framework event took place today in Wakefield, launching an initiative that positions key UK suppliers, including 2bm, on a fast track to win £400m of business building data centres for government offices and public bodies.

A public procurement body, YPO set up the framework agreement under European law and recently appointed 2bm as a supplier to build public sector data centres.

Mark King, 2bm Managing Director, commented: “It is recognition for the talent and expertise at 2bm that we have been chosen for the YPO framework to build public sector data centres and welcome today’s opportunity to showcase our expertise to YPO members and associates.”

“The good news is the arrangement covers the whole computing supply chain, from consulting, designing and building data centres to security, maintenance and support services,” added Mark.
