G-Cloud 13: Your Guide to the Latest Procurement Agreement

February 16, 2023

G-Cloud 13 is finally here, and we can’t wait to share all the exciting updates with you. The latest procurement agreement allows buyers to select and purchase services from a range of suppliers across cloud hosting, software, and services. However, there are some important changes you need to know before using the new agreement.

Accessing the Agreement: What You Need to Know

One of the significant changes to the G-Cloud 13 agreement is the way buyers can access it. The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has announced that it will be one of the first agreements to make use of the new Public Procurement Gateway. Starting November 9th, 2022, buyers can use the contract and award service to purchase through G-Cloud 13. To ensure that you are ready to buy through G-Cloud 13, it’s essential to follow the CCS guidance available on their website.

Upskilling: How to Use the New Platform

If you want to get ahead and become a G-Cloud 13 expert, you can upskill by completing an introduction to PPG available on the same website. This resource will teach you everything you need to know about using the new platform, so you can confidently navigate the procurement process and choose the right supplier for your needs.

Social Value: Making a Difference with Your Procurement

Social value has become an increasingly important consideration in procurement in recent years. The G-Cloud 13 agreement reflects this by giving buyers the ability to view the social value provided by suppliers. This feature helps buyers to choose the right supplier to meet their organisation’s targets. For example, suppliers were asked to provide information about how they will deliver against social value themes such as fighting climate change, COVID-19 recovery, tackling economic inequality, equal opportunities, and wellbeing.

Choosing Suppliers Who Prioritise Social Value

If you’re looking for suppliers that prioritise social value, you can find Titus’ Social Value information on all of our listings on the Digital Marketplace. We take our social value commitments seriously and are committed to delivering and improving them throughout the agreement.

Expectations: What to Expect with G-Cloud 13

Unlike G-Cloud 12, which was extended until 2022 due to the pandemic, G-Cloud 13 is expected to run for one year, with an option for a 12-month extension should the need arise. This shorter timeframe makes it easier for buyers to plan and budget for their procurement needs, ensuring they can take full advantage of the latest procurement agreement.

Conclusion: Why G-Cloud 13 is Your Best Bet

G-Cloud 13 offers buyers a unique opportunity to purchase services from a range of suppliers across cloud hosting, software, and services. With the new changes, buyers can now access the agreement through the Public Procurement Gateway, view social value provided by suppliers, and expect it to run for a year. This makes it easier to plan and budget for their procurement needs. We hope this guide has been helpful in explaining the new changes, and we can’t wait to see you take full advantage of G-Cloud 13!
