*NEW RESEARCH* Digital Future Review: 2021-22

Digital Future Review CoverTechMarketView’s Digital Future Review 2021-22 reveals combined spend through four of the Crown Commercial Service's (CCS) Digital Future frameworks (G-Cloud, Digital Outcomes & Specialists (DOS), Digital Capability for Health (DCFH) and the Digital Inclusion & Support (DIS) DPS), was up 20% to £3.8bn (2020-21: £3.2bn). G-Cloud accounted for 73% and DOS for 27%, with combined DCFH and DIS spend representing less than 1% of Digital Future spend during the period.

Driven by strong growth in the Health and Defence subsectors, spend on G-Cloud was up 22% year-on-year to £2.8bn. Central Government represented 53% of G-Cloud spend during the year, compared to 70% in 2018-19.

After the challenges of bringing in teams and specialists during the pandemic, spend via DOS picked-up again in 2021-22 growing 15% to £1.0bn—the first time DOS spend has exceeded £1bn over the financial year.

The rate of growth in spend with SMEs during the period was faster than that of large companies over the year, with the former up 27% to £1.5bn and the latter up 17% to £2.4bn, resulting in SMEs representing 38% of spend for the year (2020-21: 36%).

Four companies (AWS, Kainos, Deloitte and Capgemini) broke the £100m barrier for combined G-Cloud and DOS income during the year. Six buyers (Home Office; HMRC; NHS Digital; Department for Work and Pensions; Ministry of Justice; and Department of Health and Social Care) broke the £100m spend barrier—their combined spend represented 37% of total G-Cloud and DOS spend for the period.
