Digital Marketplace on the G-Cloud framework agreement
The GOV Digital marketplace is a government website that organisations can use to find cloud software and services.
Buying through this framework means you can save time and the associated costs of entry into individual procurement contracts. Many organisations can use the Digital Marketplace as an alternative to the tender process since there is a standardised set of information from each supplier provided on the portal. This information is what is typically requested in a tender for cloud-based software.
One of the other benefits of using this service is that SDS will be able to work more closely with customers in the pre-sale process than would be possible using a traditional tender arrangement.
The G Cloud 11 framework is an agreement between the government and SDS where both agree to follow the terms of a formal procurement process as described in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
Three SDS products are available on the GOV.UK Digital Marketplace: SDS ProVal to appraise the feasibility of schemes; SDS Sequel to project manage the delivery of those schemes; and SDS HomeMatch to manage the conveyancing of the homes in those schemes. This means our customers have a simpler route to procure our brilliant software to develop more affordable homes.
