We wrote about the G-Cloud a while back. It’s a great opportunity for SaaS companies to unlock a potentially untapped client base that might lead to valuable government contracts.

Applications to its new iteration, the G-Cloud 12 framework, opened on 3 March 2020. Here’s all you need to know to apply.

Timescale

Applications to the twelfth iteration of the framework opened on Tuesday 3 March. You can see the full details on the Gov.uk website. If anything is unclear, you have until Wednesday 1 April to ask for clarifications.

Answers to any requests will be provided on Wednesday 15 Apri, a week before the 22 April deadline.

Successful applications will be communicated on Friday 5 June, with the framework expected to launch on Thursday 2 July 2020.

What you need to do

If you are already on G-Cloud 11, you’ll still need to apply to G-Cloud 12.

All G-Cloud services on the previous iteration will be removed when new one is live.

You can reuse your G-Cloud 11 declaration and services. You should double-check your responses before submitting your application. You’ll have to upload new service documents.

If you have never applied to sell on the Digital Marketplace create a supplier account to apply.
