G-Cloud 7 and G-Cloud 8 suppliers
Suppliers on G-Cloud 7 (G7) and G-Cloud 8 (G8) must apply to G9 to continue selling their services on the Digital Marketplace. We’ll be removing G7 and G8 services from the Digital Marketplace when G9 services go live.

This means that if you need to ask a question about G9, you must send it to the Crown Commercial Service through the dedicated G9 updates page of your account on the Digital Marketplace. We’ll post all questions and answers on this page.
To make sure the process is fair and transparent, all suppliers will be able to see all questions and answers. You can ask questions between now and 5pm BST on 28 March 2017. We’ll answer them by 5pm BST on 4 April 2017.
