G-Cloud 5

G-Cloud 5 has now gone live in the CloudStore and again the number of suppliers and services has grown. This iteration sees 1132 suppliers, up again by over 10% from G-Cloud 4 applications, and 9236 new services added to the store. There has also been a great increase in SMEs, with now 87% on the G-Cloud 5 framework.

With the sales now past £175M this shows continued growing awareness and support for the framework.

It’s also been the best iteration for attracting new suppliers, with 439 who are new to the framework, 92% are SMEs. This brings the total number of suppliers on the store to 1518 (88% SMEs) with over 17,000 services available to choose from.

Some suppliers may be offering duplicate services on G-Cloud 4 & 5 and buyers may want to compare them to see if there are any new benefits or savings that have been added with the new framework before awarding the relevant call off contract.

    Is G-Cloud V live for all services? The framework document and call-off contract seems to only cover Specialist Cloud Services.

    Also the 'Buy Services' section refers to v3 and v4.

    Are we able to see anywhere how many prospective buyers have viewed our product please?

      As the CloudStore is open to view it is not possible to see who has viewed any particular service. We are looking at ways in which suppliers can receive more relevant feedback when they come up in search results or make a shortlist in the new Digital Marketplace.

    I've been getting rather suspect looking emails asking me to "Claim your account" for the digital marketplace.

    Can you confirm this is coming from .GOV of some description and isn't some spam/malware?

    Thanks
