- have the assurance that every product and service in the catalogue as been accredited to Government standards.
- will always use suppliers that are approved by Government as being agile, efficient and offering value for money.
- can find low cost and high quality solutions simply.
If you’re a supplier keen to join the CloudStore then keep looking out on our blogsite for when the procurement is open again and stay up-to-date with what’s happening by following us on twitter @G_Cloud_UK or on the blog. Also make sure you have a look at how to apply.
Accreditation – to be aware
We are gradually working through accrediting the products you see in the CloudStore and so some will not yet been accredited.
The next stage will be to accredit some of the products in line with CESG guidance on information assurance. This means that once products have been accredited, Government buyers will be able to use them straight off the shelf without having to go through the accreditation process again. There will be products available up to IL3.
If you want to use a particular product now and you need it to be accredited, get in touch with us and we’ll be able to tell you its status.
