Benefits of procuring through G-Cloud: 

OJEU Compliant: The G-Cloud framework is an OJEU compliant route to market. Buyers can be rest assured that the procurement exercise they are conducting is fully EU compliant. To join the G-Cloud 11 framework 3C Consultants have been carefully evaluated during the tender process. 

Save cost: Purchasing using the G-Cloud framework via the Governments Digital Marketplace enables organisations to easily search for services, contact potential suppliers and start working with them in just a matter of days. This provides significant and sustainable cost savings. Procurement via G-Cloud is often said to be at least 50% cheaper than many other standard procurement methods. 

Speed and simplicity to buy: It can be overwhelming trying to buy digital and Cloud services. The sheer volume of offerings and the complexity of the technology, means it can be a time consuming process. With G-Cloud it is possible to buy solutions in no time, ‘compliantly’. G-Cloud is one of the few frameworks that allows Direct Award. What this means is that if you follow the complete buying process, you do not have to offer any tenders out, no RFIs or ITTs! You’re able to award to the supplier who best meets your needs. 

Contractual safeguards: The G-Cloud pre-agreed terms and conditions offer customers sound contractual safeguards.
