Digital Marketplace to widen government IT procurement launched

12 November 2014

A Digital Marketplace that aspires to make it easier for the public sector to do business with IT providers has been launched.

It aims to help the public sector purchase IT services from a wide range of suppliers by providing a single place to access and buy IT commodities and services, such as site analytics and hosting services, from G-Cloud.

G-Cloud allows anyone in the public sector to buy off the shelf cloud-based services on a pay as you go basis.

The Cabinet Office said the simple design of the Digital Marketplace will make it easier for buyers to find what they need when they need it.

Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude said: "As part of our long term plan this government has been levelling the playing field and opening up digital procurement to the widest range of suppliers including SMEs.”
