Notes to Editors

The G-Cloud framework is an agreement between the government and suppliers who provide cloud-based services. The basic terms of use are agreed by both parties following a formal Official Journal of the European Union procurement process. This saves public sector organisations and suppliers the time and cost traditionally associated with individual procurement contracts. Buyers and suppliers still need to sign a ‘call-off contract’ for each service procured through a framework.
