CEMAR is now available for procurement through G-Cloud 10 within the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Digital Marketplace. Our Software as a Service (SaaS) is available to public sector buyers through G-Cloud 10 to help ease the process of cloud-based IT procurement.
CCS has been running the G-Cloud service since 2012, within which CEMAR has been available since its seventh iteration in 2015. It was launched for public sector organisations to buy cloud-based IT services without the need for full tenders or competition procurement process. It allows UK government departments to select suppliers with ease, helping them comply with the ‘Cloud First’ approach launched in 2013.
G-Cloud 10 is an imperative service for SaaS providing SMEs, as these size businesses, CEMAR included, make up nearly 90% of the suppliers. In the G-Cloud framework’s last version, there were just under 3,000 cloud-based suppliers listed. In February 2018, it was noted that more than £2.8bn of services had been procured through G-Cloud since its launch.
