We are delighted to announce that BrightCloud is one of thousands of SMEs to have been awarded the chance to supply cloud computing services to government bodies through a major government procurement framework.
The framework known as G-Cloud, gives central government, local councils, NHS Trusts and other public sector bodies a way to purchase cloud-based services such as web hosting from a single, central website. Since 2012, more than £3 billion of cloud and digital services have been procured by public bodies through G-Cloud, with 48 per cent of that spend going directly to SMEs.
Oliver Dowden, Minister for Implementation said:
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, delivering innovative solutions in partnership with the public sector, fuelling economic growth and supporting the delivery of efficient, effective public services that meet the needs of citizens.”
“The success of G-Cloud demonstrates how we are breaking down the barriers for SMEs who want to supply to government.”
G-Cloud 10, which could eventually be worth £600 million, is accessed through the Digital Marketplace – created in 2014 by Crown Commercial Service and Government Digital Service to make government procurement easier and more transparent.
BrightCloud has 20 services on the G-Cloud 10 framework, you can see the full list here.
