On 29 January 2021 the DCC was Directed by BEIS to produce an implementation plan for DSP. This Consultation is intended to inform our customers and other stakeholders of DCC’s planned activity in relation to the DSP Procurement activities.

The Network Evolution Programme (NEP) is a DCC initiative geared towards defining and delivering the organisation’s future operating capability and includes the Data Services Provider programme.

The objective of this programme is to design and procure data services which enable continuity of service beyond the lifetime of the existing services, whilst meeting customers evolving business needs and exploring use of new technology to deliver better value for our customers.
