G-Cloud 10 agreement supports the UK Government’s policy to centrally manage the procurement of common goods and services through an integrated commercial function.
The G Cloud 10 is a commercial agreement that allows UK Public Sector bodies to choose and purchase cloud computing services covering infrastructure, platform, software and specialist cloud services.
The G-Cloud 10 is hosted on the Digital Marketplace – an online store, which enables UK Public Sector bodies to search for services covered under G-Cloud framework.
The framework is for commodity-based, pay-as-you go cloud services across three lots:
The agreement runs for 12 months. However, the duration may be extended for any period up to a maximum of 12 months from expiry of the initial term. Any call off contract placed will have a maximum initial duration of 24 months, with two extensions allowed, each of up to 12 months.
