*NEW RESEARCH* Digital Future Review: H1 2022-23

Report Cover ImageTechMarketView’s latest data-driven report, which reviews the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Digital Future sales figures covering the first half of the UK Government’s 2022-23 financial year (six months ended 30 September 2022), is available now.

Analysis of the combined spend through six of the Digital Future frameworks (G-Cloud; Digital Outcomes & Specialists (DOS); Cloud Compute; Digital Capability for Health (DCFH); Digital Inclusion & Support (DIS) DPS; and Digital Specialists & Programmes (DSP)), shows spend was up 13% year-on-year to £2.01bn (H1 2021-22: £1.77bn).

Growth has slowed markedly compared with the 32% growth experienced in the same period last year and is only just ahead of the pandemic hit H1 2020-21. Except for Education and Local & Regional Government—which combined represented 9% of total spend—all parts of the public sector experienced slower growth than the same period last year. Part of this is down to increased spend on other frameworks, such Technology Services, but there has also been a marked slowdown in Health spend, which had preivously been boosted by COVID-19 related projects.

G-Cloud accounted for 70% of total spend in the period, DOS for 28% and DCFH 1%. The remaining three frameworks (Cloud Computing, DIS and DSP) represented less than 0.1% of Digital Future spend during the period. Spend via G-Cloud was up 9% year-on-year to £1.41bn, with DOS up 19% to £562.5m (H1 2021-22: £473.6m).

The rate of growth in spend with large companies was slightly faster than that of SMEs during the period, with the former up 14% to £1.27bn (H1 2021-22: £1.12bn) and the latter up 12% to £734.9m (H1 2021-22: £653.5m), resulting in SMEs representing 37% of spend for the year (H1 2021-22: 37%).

Five companies (AWS, Capgemini, Cognizant, Deloitte and Kainos) broke the £50m barrier for combined G-Cloud and DOS income during the period, with AWS leading the way by a significant margin. Four buyers (Home Office; HMRC; Department for Work and Pensions; and NHS Digital) broke the £100m spend barrier—their combined spend represented 30% of total spend across the six frameworks for the period.
