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.
Services available from G-Cloud 4 & 5
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.
Services from G-Cloud iii are no longer available.
