The G-Cloud Programme is a procurement framework designed to promote and encourage the adoption of cloud services in government bodies across the UK. The initiative levels the playing field for government technology suppliers, offering small businesses the opportunity to bid to supply cloud computing services to the UK’s public sector. The latest iteration of the programme, G-Cloud 10, launched in July 2018.

Oliver Dowden, minister for implementation, said:

"Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, delivering innovative solutions in partnership with the public sector, fuelling economic growth and supporting the delivery of efficient, effective public services that meet the needs of citizens. The success of G-Cloud demonstrates how we are breaking down the barriers for SMEs who want to supply to government."

Since 2012, over £3 billion of cloud and digital services have been procured by public bodies through the G-Cloud framework, with 48% of that spend going directly to SMEs. Each iteration has seen enhanced functionality and an increased volume of transactions, with the ultimate goal to migrate 50% of government IT spending to cloud-based solutions. This latest version continues to encourage digital transformation and innovation across the UK.
