We are delighted to announce that SARD has successfully been approved as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) G-Cloud framework. This will provide our new and existing customers with even more choice and a simpler way of moving forward with SARD as your supplier.
G-Cloud provides the NHS and wider public sector a straightforward and compliant way to purchase cloud-based services such as hosting, software, and support. More than £1.5 billion, an average of £150 million each year, has been accrued in commercial benefits over the lifetime of the G-Cloud agreement, representing significant savings for the public purse.
The CCS also announced that G-Cloud 13 will now also be accessible through a brand new digital Contract Award Service (CAS) to enable a better experience for NHS customers. CAS will support future iterations of G-Cloud in an agile manner, as well as eventually digitally enabling all CCS agreements across their broad portfolio. The aim of this digital enablement is to provide customers (buyers and suppliers), with a full end to end digital procurement experience.
In an additional benefit to users of the G-Cloud 13 Framework, the call-off term across the agreement has changed to 36 months with an optional 12-month extension allowing for increased flexibility.
