Management Information System Online

The Digital Marketplace is open and transparent, we publish all the spend data on a monthly basis which can be found on the Digital Marketplace blog sales page.

In order to capture spend data, it is a requirement of the framework that suppliers submit monthly Management Information returns via the Crown Commercial Service’s Management Information System Online (MISO). Because this data is made public suppliers are reminded not to include any sensitive information or personal data within these reports.

Submitting returns

These returns detail the value of orders that have been placed and also invoices that suppliers have issued to their customers. As returns form part of an audit trail, suppliers must report every month, including months with no activity. These are called “Nil Returns” and can be reported by simply clicking the “Report No Spend” within the MISO System.

Returns need to be reported between the 1st and 7th of each month, and are submitted one month in arrears. Returns due during the first week of March will detail activity from February. As all frameworks are individually reported, suppliers need to submit returns for each framework they are on.

Suppliers who have Call Off contracts that are still being invoiced will still need to report these whether on G-Cloud 4 or G-Cloud 5 frameworks.

Account details

New users will receive their MISO login details over the next few days. If the person responsible already reports for an existing framework then in March, they will see G-Cloud 6 added to their MISO account.

The MISO System can be found on the Crown Commercial Service website.

If suppliers have not received their login details or have any questions regarding MISO, or MI in general, please contact the Cloud & Services team: ICT_Services@ccs.gsi.gov.uk

    It would be great if even more of the data that is submitted by suppliers could be made available to the public. For example, the MISO reports are in two formats - contracts signed and spend against those contracts. Currently only spend data is published. It would be great if contract data could be published as well. Happy to help work through what data would be great to see published.
