Services you can supply on the Digital Marketplace

You can sell cloud technology and digital specialist services to government on the Digital Marketplace.

The public sector uses the Digital Marketplace to buy digital services.

Services on the Digital Marketplace

Suppliers on the Digital Marketplace can either sell:

  • cloud-based services
  • digital specialists services

Cloud-based services are:

  • cloud hosting, for example content delivery networks or load balancing services
  • cloud software, for example accounting tools or customer service management software
  • cloud support, for example migration services or ongoing support

Digital specialist services are:

  • digital outcomes, for example a team to provide a booking system beta or an accessibility audit
  • digital specialists, for example an individual developer or user researcher to work on a specific project
  • user research studios
  • user research participants

How to sell your services

Each type of service (cloud software or digital specialists) is provided on a ‘framework’.

Each framework is only open for applications at certain times. This is to make sure all buyers and suppliers are doing business using the same terms and conditions.

Applications for G-Cloud 12 are open until 5pm on Monday 20 July 2020.
