    G-Cloud gives central government, local councils, NHS Trusts and other public sector bodies a way to purchase cloud-based services

Last month the Cabinet Office announced that a new version of the G-Cloud procurement framework will open for bids in April, allowing new companies to join the framework - after delivering £1.4bn of spend to small businesses since its inception.

The decision to release a new version of the framework will support new companies, including small businesses, to supply to government, while also giving current suppliers the opportunity to update their service offer and pricing.

G-Cloud gives central government, local councils, NHS Trusts and other public sector bodies a way to purchase cloud-based services such as web hosting from a single, central website. Companies will be able to bid to join the framework from April. G-Cloud 10 could eventually be worth £600 million

Procuring the Smarter State

techUK held a G- Cloud 10 market briefing with techUK members bringing together market experts Advice Cloud, and the G- Cloud leads from the Crown Commercial Service to answer questions from suppliers. This included tips on being successful on G- Cloud 10, and also key timelines and processes for adding services to the new framework. An overview was also provided on the key recommendations from techUK’s recently published report Procuring the Smarter State
