G-Cloud (RM1557.12) is a framework in which cloud-based solutions are made available to vendors through a front-end catalog called the Digital Marketplace. G-Cloud Framework is the perfect place for companies considering selling their cloud-based solutions to the UK government. Find out what`s sold on G-Cloud, what makes a good list, and even tips on how to market and sell the framework. The Digital Marketplace Buyers Guide and framework agreement describe four different types of criteria that you can use to evaluate pre-selected suppliers under M.E.A.T.: The Digital Marketplace and all the frameworks it contains are managed by Crown Commercial Service (CCS). CSC is an executive agency and business fund of the UK Government`s Cabinet Office. Its mission is to improve the government`s commercial and procurement activities. The G-Cloud Framework is divided into categories (batches) and providers can apply for one or three depending on the solutions they offer to the public sector.

As part of the G-Cloud framework agreement and the call contract, there are now specific clauses that cover the provider`s requirements under the GDPR. We also recommend that vendors describe their information security processes and internal GDPR procedures in their service definitions. Suppliers are required to provide their current terms and conditions.
