Government procurement framework G-Cloud 11 goes live with 4,200 suppliers

G-Cloud 11, a new major government procurement framework is set to go live featuring over 4,200 suppliers.

The latest G-Cloud framework has now been awarded, and will go on the government’s Digital Marketplace imminently.

Around £4.8bn of cloud and digital have been procured by public bodies through G-Cloud since 2012, with nearly 45% of this spend going directly to SMEs.

The Crown Commercial Service said the new agreement gives central government, local councils, NHS trusts and other public sector bodies a way to purchase cloud-based services, such as web hosting, from one, central website.

Between them, suppliers will offer more than 31,000 services across the framework, split into three lots covering software, support and hosting offerings, available for customers to access.

Niall Quinn, director of Crown Commercial Service’s Technology Pillar, said: ‘G-Cloud continues to be a major success story for how we drive innovation in the public sector.

“G-Cloud is all about simplicity, making it as straightforward as possible for customers and suppliers to find each other.”

G-Cloud is accessed through the Digital Marketplace, created in 2014 by CCS and the Government Digital Service to make government procurement easier.
