What is G-Cloud? 

Better, Faster, Cheaper UK Government Procurement through G-Cloud

Cloud First is the United Kingdom government’s initiative to achieve cross-government economies of scale in its procurement practices.  Using a centralised procurement framework, G-Cloud , public sector agencies can gain access to more than 800 suppliers and more than 7,000 services across all types of cloud service models, including public, private and hybrid from the G-Cloud Digital Marketplace.


It provides public sector organisations a legally compliant framework through which they can buy commodity pay-as-you-go services, as a cheaper alternative to traditionally sourced ICT – simply and transparently.

G-Cloud is easy to use. In fact it’s fast – rapid implementation of days and weeks not months or years.  Thousands of hours of development and years of expertise at your fingertips. All of this is making buying easier and saving you costs.
