The G-Cloud Programme is a cross government initiative led by Andy Nelson (Ministry of Justice) supported by Denise McDonagh (Home Office) under the direction of the Chief Information Officer Delivery Board as part of the Government ICT Strategy.
The initial focus is on introducing cloud ICT services into government departments, local authorities and the wider public sector. In order to do this we have undertaken a G-Cloud procurement framework for services under the OJEU process. These services can then be reviewed and purchased through the CloudStore. At present there are 4 categories of services: Infrastructure, Software, Platform and Specialist Services and details of the process and how to buy can be found here.
This site is the portal to the CloudStore and is to help us ensure that everything relating to the programme can be found in one place and as a result we’ll be building it as we go along as well as blogging about progress and other relevant events. If you’d like more information please download the strategy, or to contact us then you can either contact us here or send us a message on twitter @g_cloud_uk and we’ll get back to you.
