The Education Sector landscape is changing significantly, a need to embrace new technologies that redefine teaching methods along with the disaggregation of financial support has placed significant new pressures on the individual schools and academies. They are now responsible not just for running their own budgets but also finding, procuring and working with independent suppliers of services.  However, those organisations that rise to this challenge can gain significant benefits such as cost savings, shared services, and fast, reliable and flexible connectivity.

Established in 2007, NYnet designs, builds installs, manages and supports Wide Area Networks (WANs) in the North of England, predominantly for the Public Sector and has a significant presence in the education sector currently supplying networking services to over 200 schools. NYnet Ltd is 100% owned by North Yorkshire County Council. NYnet’s underlying business principle is ‘By the Public Sector, for the Public Sector’.

Easy to do business with

NYnet’s products and services are pre-procured through Regulation 12 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, which allows the public sector to buy from NYnet without going through the normal time consuming and expensive procurement process as a result of NYnet’s public sector ownership.
