G-Cloud turns 10

CCS LogoG-Cloud is now 10 years old. Marking the anniversary, Crown Commercial Service (CCS) said the framework has achieved £1.5bn in commercial benefits over the decade.

The framework launched in 2012 as a key component of the Government Cloud Strategy and Cloud First policy. CCS says over 5,000 suppliers have been part of the agreement, offering over 38,000 services to public sector organisations.

As the need for digital transformation accelerated and public sector organisations became more accepting of cloud-based solutions, so the amount of spend via G-Cloud has increased. In 2013-14, £142m was spent via the framework, it broke the £1bn annual spend barrier in 2016-17, and in 2021-22 recorded its highest ever spend at £3.8bn (see TechMarketView’s Digital Future Review: 2021-22 for in-depth analysis). CCS expects G-Cloud to help deliver c.£200m in commercial benefits this year.  

The latest data (May 2022), shows total spend via G-Cloud now stands at c.£11.8bn, with approximately 39% of spend going to suppliers that were SMEs at the time of contract award. It has proved to be an important source of income for many public sector suppliers, with seven companies—AWS; BAE Systems; Capgemini; Deloitte; IBM; Methods; and PA Consulting—securing over £200m of business through the framework since its inception.

The contract notices for the next iteration, G-Cloud 13, were published in March, with places on the framework expected to be awarded in the autumn this year—more detail here.
