We're pleased to announce we have been awarded a G-Cloud 13 framework contract.
G-Cloud 13 itself will go live on 9 November 2022.
What's new in G Cloud 13?
Improved availability to small and medium-sized enterprises, a more straightforward path to market, the latest in cloud technology and innovation, and lower prices thanks to increased competition for Cloud Support Services in Lot 4 are just a few of the many user-friendly enhancements included in the latest G-Cloud iteration.
G-Cloud has been around for 12 versions, and it has amassed almost £10 billion in revenue throughout that time. Due to the availability of high-value contracts and compliant ways of concluding deals, the method has rapidly gained popularity as a public sector procurement strategy since its inception.
Since its inception in 2012, it is projected that more than half of G-Clouds spending is allocated to SMEs. Nonetheless, many SMEs' involvements in the system have been impeded for decades by the average bid submission costing over £2,800.
There's hope for the reduction of exclusion and an opening of the bidding process to all enterprises, regardless of size, by removing the barriers of cost and resources. Lowered barriers to entry on G-Cloud 13 are widely expected to bring about a flood of new small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on the platform.
As such, we will keep offering cloud hosting, development and related support services to the UK's central government departments and organisations as we have done for many years.
