G-Cloud 9 is live – how to find S8080’s G-Cloud services

Gov.UK

The latest iteration of G-Cloud, version 9 was launched last night. G-Cloud is a legally compliant procurement framework designed to drastically reduce the cost and the time it takes public sector organisations to buy digital services that use cloud based computing.

It’s the perfect platform to help you design, deploy and manage an opensource content management system, either a new website or the migration of an old website to a modern open source CMS.

You can find our services here, or by typing ‘S8080’ into the Digital Marketplace search box. Below is the complete list of our 20 services. Please get in touch if you have any questions about procuring services that S8080 offer via the G-Cloud frameworkinfo@s8080.com

Security improvements

This latest version has refined the supplier application process with far more emphasis on security and ISO 27001 certification. Crown Commercial Services wrote in their blog “We’ve worked with experts in technology and security from across Government Digital Service (GDS) and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) to re-write the questions,” said the post. “We’ve iterated the questions based on feedback we received through user research. They’re now more specific to the technology being bought and aligned with the NCSC cloud security principles.”

S8080 are ISO/IEC 27001 certified and also hold Cyber Essentials certification.

How to buy on G-Cloud

To buy cloud services using G-Cloud, you need to:

1. Prepare a list of your requirements
2. Search for services on the Digital Marketplace using keywords
3. Review search results and use filters to create your shortlist
4. Compare services to find value for money
5. Choose your service, award and sign the pre-prepared contract

The Government Digital Service have written a complete buyers guide, but our client’s procurement managers have told us it has made buying digital service so much easier, faster and more efficient.
