G-Cloud sales exceed £175m, Cabinet Office minister says

Francis Maude said G-Cloud has improved competition for SMEs in the public sector, but the OFT doesn't necessarily see it that way

UK Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude told an audience at a public sector procurement tradeshow in London Tuesday that the G-Cloud programme has been successful at opening up the public sector market to SMEs.

UK’s G-Cloud 4 launches with 300 more suppliers than last iteration

G-Cloud sales topped $53.5 million last month, a steady improvement, up from £44.7 million in September

The latest iteration of the UK government’s procurement framework for cloud services, G-Cloud 4, is scheduled to go live this week with just under 1,000 suppliers listed in the CloudStore, many of which are SMEs, and over 13,000 services. Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude said the latest figures demonstrate the effectiveness of G-Cloud in shifting the balance between small businesses and the large SIs.
