We are pleased to announce that Transform has been appointed to G-Cloud 13 (RM1557.13) lots 1, 2 and 3, as well as being selected as a supplier on the newly created Lot 4, run by Crown Commercial Service (CCS).
On G-Cloud 13, public sector customers can buy cloud-based computing services such as hosting, software, and cloud support, including many off-the-shelf, pay-as-you-go cloud solutions.
Suppliers on G-Cloud 13 must meet the UK Government’s highest standards for privacy, security, and scalability, allowing customers to procure a wide range of services and solutions fast and at low risk.
G-Cloud 13 has replaced G-Cloud 12 and will continue to provide a large variety of cloud-based services from a range of suppliers. Transform has been on G-Cloud since its very first iteration, G-Cloud ii in 2012, and we are very proud to have secured our place for yet another iteration of the framework.
G-Cloud 13 went live November 2022 and is split into:
Lot 1 Cloud Hosting (PaaS, IaaS): provides platform or infrastructure services for processing and storing data, running software or networking. Cloud hosting offers the capability to deploy, manage and run software, and provides processing, storage, or network resources.
Lot 2 Cloud Software (SaaS): offers applications that are usually accessed over the internet or private network and hosted in the cloud.
Lot 3 Cloud Support: helps set up and maintain cloud software or hosting services.
This latest iteration saw the introduction of Lot 4 Cloud Support (Further Competition) for larger, complex requirements for cloud support services. In addition, the call-off term across the agreement has changed to 36 months, with an optional 12-month extension.
G-Cloud 13 will now be accessible via a new digital Contract Award Service (CAS). CAS will support future iterations of G-Cloud in an agile manner, as well as eventually digitally enabling all CCS agreements across its broad portfolio. The aim of this digital enablement is to provide to buyers and suppliers a full end-to-end digital procurement experience.
Johan Hogsander, Managing Director of Transform said: “This is testament to Transform’s growing capabilities in the cloud space. We are very proud to have been appointed to Lot 4 in particular, as this lot has a limited number of participants and only the ones with the strongest capabilities were selected for participation. This will allow us to provide our clients with even more extensive services in this space”.
Transform is already a supplier in many other public sector frameworks, including:
Digital Specialists and Programmes (RM6263) Lot 2, if you are looking for organisations with the full range of Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) skills.

Software Design and Implementation Services (RM6193), if you need to find the skills and services you need to deploy new cloud-based back-office systems or upgrade legacy IT systems.
Research and Insights DPS (RM6126), which helps you to find relevant suppliers through a filtering system.
Artificial Intelligence DPS (RM6200), that offers artificial intelligence (AI) services to the whole of the public sector and their associated bodies and agencies.
