An independent review of your ICT to identify improvements.
An ICT Audit and Strategy provides you with an independent review of your technical, operational, and educational ICT, and improvement recommendations in the form of an ICT Strategy to ensure ICT is effective, enabling The Trust or School to meet its educational aims.
We work in partnership with you and through meetings, site visits, staff, and student interviews we get an understanding of your needs and how ICT can enable the achievement of your educational aims.
Giving you confidence that your procurement project will be run fairly and transparently to meet the Public Contract Regulations while delivering the outcome that is right for you.
We manage procurement exercises for ICT systems and infrastructure (e.g. MIS, Broadband, Telephony, e-safety), corporate software (e.g. HR, Payroll, Finance), and ICT support services (e.g. ICT Managed Services, 3rd Line Support).
These include full FTS tenders or call-off competitions using government frameworks. With thorough knowledge of the industry, we work as a neutral third party to ensure that not only does the tender outcome meet your needs and deliver value for money, but that it adheres to all Public Contract Regulations and is therefore compliant.
Our experts engage with stakeholders to ensure your requirements are fully understood and clearly specified.
Flexible and comprehensive ICT advice to schools and MAT leaders.
ICT Advice is a simple way to access Novatia’s expertise and advice using a range of approaches, without being tied into long contracts. We offer advice on all areas of ICT: Technical, operational, educational, commercial and contracts, procurement, and project management.
We’re known for taking our passion, knowledge, and experience of ICT to make a real difference to learning outcomes in Education. We have therefore made the ICT Advice service available through a variety of pricing structures, ensuring that there is a solution suitable for your MAT.
Working with Tier 1 Main Contractors, we work with you from EoI through to handing over the keys to the head teacher to ensure ICT is considered throughout the design and delivery process.
You are the main contractor for a new school build and naturally, you want it to be well planned, go smoothly and be ready for handover, on time and on budget. As you know, the key to achieving this is having the right partners, whose area of expertise you can tap into.
As ICT experts in UK Education, we are privileged to have been part of over 150 school design and delivery projects. Bringing in an experienced ICT partner from the very start of the tender process right through to when the keys are handed over to the Headteacher is paramount for accurate design, smooth delivery, and a successful ICT infrastructure project.
An audit allowing you to make evidence based decisions, making you feel more confident when strategies are implemented.
A data audit & strategy by Novatia is a great way to get an independent audit which is not biased and has no conflict of interest.
Similar to an ICT audit & strategy, we work with you through meetings, site visits and interviews with staff to get a firm understanding on how we can help to improve the way you use your data as a school or MAT.
Our key outputs are a data strategy report so you can understand what short and long term goals need to be implemented to improve your Trust strategy and technical priorities. Furthermore, we provide a comprehensive record of all systems containing data across the organisation at the end of our project with you.
We understand that cyber security can be a daunting aspect of schools and MATs so we want to help. We can assess your cyber security, based on the DfE's standards, providing insights on how to keep your school safe from cyber attacks, phishing and viruses.
