The UK government G-Cloud program enables public sector organizations in the UK to procure cloud services on government-approved contracts through an online catalog known as the Digital Marketplace.
The lots available include:
– Cloud Hosting
– Cloud Software
– Cloud Support
The Digital Marketplace has a series of framework agreements with suppliers from which public-sector organizations in the UK can procure services without the need to engage in a competitive tender process. G-Cloud is a UK government initiative, which was introduced in 2012, to promote a wider adoption of cloud computing and to provide a fair way for buyers to evaluate and procure services from a wider pool of suppliers.
