The UK Government have awarded Cloudsource a place on the G-Cloud 10 framework!
The G-Cloud framework is an agreement between the government and suppliers who provide cloud-based services. The framework changes the way in which public sector organisations purchase information and communications technology. It also streamlines how public bodies procure cloud services as part of the UK government’s “Cloud First” policy, which was introduced in 2013 to encourage public sector organisations to consider cloud-based services over on-premise alternatives.
Paul Mahon, Cloudsource Sales Director, said:
“Being on the G-Cloud Framework is a huge achievement as it means we are trusted to supply to government bodies. It’s proof that we are a reputable supplier and is a testament to the reliability of Cloudsource’s products.”
In a blog post, G-Cloud Director Warren Smith stated:
“We’re spreading better practice of user-centred, design-led and open approaches to public sector procurements and contracts. This reduces barriers for suppliers to enter the public sector market, giving access to a greater number of new and innovative suppliers. Many of them have never had the opportunity to work with government before. We want to support delivery of better public services. We’ll do this by continuing to spread better practice. This will help to transform government supply chains and the ways that buyers and suppliers interact.”
Cloudsource will be listed on the Digital Marketplace, an online store where public sector organisations can search for services covered by the G-Cloud framework.
