07 Infrastructure

As we support the delivery of the programme and then the operational status of the agency, we will make use of existing infrastructure and services that already exist in both Scotland and the wider UK public sector.

Desktop services We aim to make use of SCOTS Connect desktop services, as they already provide accredited connectivity to the Public Sector Network ( PSN) through a range of components including secure managed devices and mobile connectivity. We will consume this as a shared services customer through the Scottish Government Digital Directorate.
PSN The PSN offers a UK wide accredited network which we will adopt for cross government communications and data exchange in a secure manner.
SWAN The Scottish Wide Area Network ( SWAN) is available across the country and offers us the ability to build resilient connectivity between both agency locations in Dundee, and Glasgow, as well as a secure communication reach into other delivery partners, including Local Authorities and Health via existing infrastructure.
