Government set to introduce Cloud First policy
“It’s taking us longer than we thought”

The G-Cloud team is to send out award letters at the end of this week for G-Cloud III, a week later than originally planned. The commencement date for the launch of the third iteration of the G-Cloud is set to be announced this week, but is expected to be soon after the ten-day standstill period which is schedules for the 22nd April to 2ndMay.

According to a blog post on the G-Cloud website, the dates have been pushed back to ensure that there is enough time for suppliers to receive the award letters before the standstill period starts. The team said: “This may sound like an easy task, but with hundreds of suppliers, and letters to write, it’s taking us longer than we thought”.

The fourth iteration of the G-Cloud is expected around early summer. As of the end of February this year there has been around GBP 11 million spent through CloudStore.

It has also been reported that  total spend through CloudStore has hit GBP 18.2 million with buyers including the Home Office, Cabinet Office and Thurrock Borough Council.
