Event to demonstrate G-Cloud fundamentals to local government buyers

16 Apr 2015, 10:45 am

Local government buyers, Category Managers and Heads of Procurement are invited to a free event next month to learn more about using G-Cloud, Government’s online ‘marketplace’, to buy products and services related to ICT.

CCS logoHosted by the Local Government ICT Programme – a collaboration between the Local Government Association (LGA), Pro5 and Crown Commercial Service (CCS) – the event will provide an overview of G-Cloud, its benefits and a demonstration of how to use the Digital Marketplace (where users can search for services covered by G-Cloud frameworks). Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask the CCS team questions.

The LGA estimates that local authorities spend £2.5bn each year on ICT, with £1bn (40%) of this spent on software applications and related services.

The event, G-Cloud for Local Government, will take place at Camden Town Hall, Kings Cross, London from 10:30 to 12:30 on 1 May.
