Business Intelligence and Productivity solutions provider, Circyl, has been approved to use the G-Cloud 13 framework, enabling them to supply cloud-based solutions to UK Government.  

Managed by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), G-Cloud is a framework in which supplier solutions are made available through a front-end catalogue known as the Digital Marketplace. First opened in 2012, the framework has now reached its thirteenth iteration and is divided into three Lots.

As an experienced provider of cloud-based services, Circyl has earned the right to apply for any of these Lots depending on the solutions being offered to the public sector.

These include, Lot 1: Cloud Hosting (IaaS and PaaS), Lot 2: Cloud Software (SaaS) and Lot 3: Cloud Support – a fourth category will also be added to G-Cloud 13, running separately to the existing three.

The G-Cloud 13 framework allows prospective buyers to perform compliant searches, before awarding work to the most suitable supplier. This streamlined procurement process makes for a more competitive marketplace, consisting only of suppliers with in-depth expertise and rigid security measures.

Jason Betteridge, Managing Director at Circyl, commented: “Since its inception, there has been nearly £12bn worth of sales through the framework with 39% of that awarded to SMEs, the majority of which has come from central Government.

“With this in mind, the future growth of our business will of course be significantly boosted through our involvement in the G-Cloud 13 framework, as it provides us with an opportunity to secure public sector contracts through an efficient procurement process.

“Not only this, but being approved access to use the framework demonstrates our commitment to providing some of the most flexible and secure cloud-based solutions the market has to offer.

“2022 has been a very successful year thus far having secured a range of new business contracts, so we are excited to continue this progress by supporting clients in the public sector too.”
