We’ve been awarded G-Cloud 9 Digital Marketplace Framework Supplier Status by the Crown Commercial Service. We have been included on G-Cloud since 2014, where we first appeared on G-Cloud 5.
The G-Cloud framework is an agreement between the government and suppliers who provide cloud-based services as an initiative targeted at easing procurement by public-sector bodies in departments of the United Kingdom Government of commodity information technology services.
The framework agreement allows public sector organisations to buy services without the need to run a full tender or competition procurement process, as well as an online store – the ‘Digital Marketplace’ that allows public sector bodies to search for services that are covered by the G-Cloud frameworks.
There are many benefits for organisations using G-Cloud, including the following:
- It is easy to use
- Transparent process in place which doesn’t change
- It is quick and can be cheaper to follow this process, rather than going direct
- There are over 750 Suppliers on the framework, all in a single place
- Because it is retendered regularly, the information is up to date
Science Warehouse is included as a provider of Cloud software and we provide a comprehensive eProcurement product suite connecting public sector organisations and their Suppliers for integrated electronic trading along with a full spend analytics service offering that adds value to your organisation through data enrichment and categorisation.
“I am pleased to confirm our continued position on the CCS G-Cloud Framework. This illustrates the strength and effectiveness of our Cloud-based procurement solutions in line with market requirements, and supports our continued growth strategy for the Public Sector” said Philip Padfield, CEO, Science Warehouse.
