Public Service Network (PSN) – GOV.UK

PSN is the government’s high performance network, which helps public sector organizations work together, reduce duplication and share resources.

Who we are

We manage the NHPand ensure it is a safe network to use by overseeing the compliance process. We are part of the Central Digital and Data Office and are based in Aldgate, London.

Migration project

the NHP was established over 10 years ago and is now a legacy network.

The Cabinet Office’s Future Networks for Government (FN4G) program encourages and supports organizations to migrate from NHP to modern network solutions because:

  • The internet is suitable for the majority of work done by the public sector
  • the technology and architectural design of the network of the NHP is now obsolete, expensive and difficult to secure
  • organizations should look to modernize their infrastructure to meet the UK government’s Cloud First policy
