AUCKLAND, New Zealand, 3 March 2023
Crown-owned technology company The Network for Learning (N4L) has created new partnerships with five private sector IT companies to help deliver one of the largest IT projects in the country.
The new partnerships will support N4L’s delivery of the Te Mana Tūhono (TMT, ‘the power of connectivity’) programme on behalf of the Ministry of Education. The programme involves the design, procurement, replacement and support of Wi-Fi networks in schools and kura across the country.
The new agreements mean N4L now has partnerships with 15 IT companies and 17 companies focused on the installation of equipment. The number of companies reflects the scale of the programme of work and ensures the needs of kura and remote regions of the country are met.
The five new partners are: TTS, MB3, Isometric Solutions, GoCloud and Entity Hub. They join the existing partners listed here.
N4L CEO, Larrie Moore, welcomed the appointment of the new partners, saying:
“Our IT and Installer partners play a pivotal role in delivering new and upgrading existing products and services. They know the schools and they have worked hard to build the trust of principals over many years. Knowing we have a network of partners with long-standing relationships and a proven record of delivery makes us confident about delivering a world-class Wi-Fi service to schools and kura across the motu.”
