G-Cloud


Sales data for G-Cloud and other Digital Marketplace initiatives have been significantly improved after their recent move to GOV.UK and this page will be changed to make use of the new data during December 2017.


The G-Cloud Programme is a central government initiative to assist all UK public sector organisations to use cloud based ICT services.

G-Cloud sales data moved to a new home on gov.uk in August 2017.

Digital Outcomes and Specialists (DOS) is a similar framework and sales details have recently started to be published.

The OJEU compliant G-Cloud and DOS frameworks allow services to be viewed and purchased through the Digital Marketplace online store. If a service meets your requirements you can purchase it directly without having to run additional tenders or mini-competitions.

The G-Cloud framework has over 26,000 services from 2,700 companies in 3 categories - hosting, software and support.

The current edition of the G-Cloud framework is G9. The previous edition (G8) expired on 28 July 2017.

There are accredited services that can support the Government Security Classifications which replaced the old Impact Levels 2/3 in April 2014.

There is a "Cloud First policy" for central government IT procurement with the wider public sector encouraged to follow a similar policy.
