The deadline for suppliers to submit their tenders for a chance to be listed on the fourth iteration of the government’s G-Cloud framework is fast approaching.
Companies wishing to have their products and services listed on the framework have until 15:00 BST today (23rd September) to submit all of their details via the online procurement tool.
The G-Cloud team, which recently integrated with the Government Digital Services and has received a boost in resources, has been warning suppliers of the deadline on Twitter.
The G-Cloud offers the public sector a wide variety of commodity cloud-based products, which are easily viewed and purchased via an online catalogue, Cloudstore. The government also recently introduced a cloud-first policy.
A huge part of the government’s plans for the G-Cloud involve including more SMEs in doing business with the public sector, something which is reflected in the vast number of smaller businesses signed up to the previous frameworks.
