SCC has extended its cloud services offering to the public sector after being awarded a place on the G-Cloud 12 framework.
Europe’s biggest independent technology solutions provider has been included on every iteration of the government’s Crown Commercial Service (CCS) G-Cloud framework since its inception in 2012, with its latest inclusion a natural progression of previous offerings.
G-Cloud is a government initiative targeted at easing procurement of cloud services by UK public sector organisations, comprising of series of framework agreements with suppliers, from which public sector organisations can buy services without needing to run a full tender, and the Digital Marketplace, an online store that enables organisations to public sector bodies to search for services.
SCC has been successful in all three lots – Cloud Hosting, Cloud Software, and Cloud Support – with new services now available to the public sector via the Digital Marketplace.
The award is the latest milestone in SCC’s continued success in public sector, with a number of significant service deliveries in local government; central government; education and emergency services. SCC has been working particularly closely with healthcare organisations this year, supporting NHS Trusts through the COVID-19 crisis.
Richard Reader, SCC’s Head of Public Sector, said: “This is the twelfth successive iteration of G-Cloud that SCC has been included on and we’re pleased to be offering an extended service that will continue to drive digital transformation across the public sector and improve the way it works, particularly during this period of significant upheaval.
“The G-Cloud framework is fundamental to our ability to the delivery of value for money IT products and services to the public sector. It ensures our 20+ year relationship with CCS continues at full strength as we continue to develop relevant solutions that improve business outcomes.”
