CCS outlines provisional G-Cloud 10 timetable

David Bicknell Published 23 March 2018

Framework is set to open for bids on April 18, with applications closing five weeks later on May 23


The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has published the provisional timetable for would-be applicants for G-Cloud 10.

The framework will open for applications on Wednesday April 18 as well as the asking of any clarification questions. The deadline for asking those clarification questions will be Wednesday May 9.

CCS has said answers to clarification questions will be published on the Digital Marketplace by 5pm on Wednesday May 16. That then provides a further week for applications to be submitted before applications close on Wednesday May 23 at 5pm.

Those whose applications are successful will be told on Monday June 18, with a standstill period then lasting until Friday June 29. The framework is then expected to go live on Monday July 2.

CCS has warned suppliers that are currently on G-Cloud 9 that they will still have to apply for G-Cloud 10 as all G-Cloud 9 services will be removed when G-Cloud 10 services go live. CCS said those on G-Cloud 9 can reuse their G-Cloud 9 declaration but they will have to add their services again.

Earlier this week, CCS also confirmed that it plans to launch the third iteration of the Digital Outcomes and Specialists (DOS) framework this year.

The framework helps the public sector to find suppliers that can research, design, build, test and deliver software applications and digital services.

CCS said DOS 3 will open for supplier applications in July, with an anticipated go-live date in September.
