Government launches next procurement round for G-Cloud

Suppliers of cloud services can now submit tenders to be included in the Government’s cloud initiative.

The fourth iteration of the G-Cloud framework, G-Cloud 4, has officially been opened by the UK’s Government Digital Service (GDS). As a result, suppliers of cloud services can now submit tenders to be included in the Government’s cloud initiative.
The programme has been updated in line with feedback received from suppliers during the last G-Cloud framework. The updates include simplifying application instructions for prospective suppliers as well as carrying forward services from previous frameworks. There will be a new GDS submission portal enabling documents for regulatory approval to be easily uploaded.
The latest announcement from the G-Cloud team comes just weeks after GDS chief operating officer Tony Singleton replaced Denise McDonagh as head of the G-Cloud programme. Singleton has stated that the services included in the G-Cloud 4 framework will go live in the Cloud Store in October 2013.
The G-Cloud programme pulled in its second highest monthly sales figure ever of GBP5.5m in sales in June. This brings total sales of cloud services through the Cloud Store up to just over GBP31m.
