It is designed to drive down costs by allowing public sector bodies to purchase services from selected suppliers.
G-Cloud 8 suppliers are carefully evaluated during the tender process and pre-agreed terms and conditions offer customers sound contractual safeguards. “The G-Cloud provides an accelerated and low-risk procurement vehicle for the public sector to acquire the tools necessary to support modernization and growth,” said Manuel Pietra, President and CEO of FreeBalance.
