Digital Marketplace and G-Cloud 11 Market Briefing

Last week we held a market briefing, where we heard from Niall Quinn from CCS and Chris Farthing, Advice Cloud.

Niall opened the session with an overview of CCS and latest developments on Digital Marketplace. There is lots happening, and we were delighted to hear from Niall!

Tech Products

The OJEU for Technology Products 3 should be out in April and will have a greater focus on services. Niall also spoke about a new innovation framework SPARK, which will aim improve the speed at which government can access new technology and to help SME’s thrive in this space. Listen for key announcements in the near future! CCS is also currently working on the next iteration on Tech Services 2 to ensure the framework is more user friendly for buyers.

CCS is replacing Technology for Traffic Management framework with Smart Cities, which is currently in the market engagement phase and OJEU is expected to go to market around April 2020. And finally, Crown Commercial Service is currently working on the Technology for Education framework and market engagement should start soon.

Digital Future

There is currently a lot of work done on Digital Outcomes and Specialist Framework (DOS) 4 and it is expected that DOS will surpass G-Cloud spend in the future. CCS expect to hold a briefing on DOS 4 at techUK in July, so keep your eye on our upcoming events!

Digital Marketplace

Niall also announced to members that Crown Marketplace has now been retired and replaced with Digital Marketplace 2. CCS are looking to scale up Digital Marketplace 2 by creating it more supplier and buyer friendly. Digital Marketplace is currently under development and there will be market engagement sessions in the future as well as supplier research.

G-Cloud 11

We were delighted to have Chris Farthing, Advice Cloud to present to members the latest on G-Cloud 11 and top tips on how to be successful. There haven’t been many changes in the new iteration of G-Cloud with CCS adding additional cyber security requirements, the HSCN addition to available list of networks and suppliers are now asked to make sure they meet requirement of the Modern Slavery Act if they have a turnover of more than £36m a year.
