Digital design, the web development and design arm of PDMS, is delighted to have secured supplier status on the latest version of the UK Government's ICT procurement programme, G-Cloud 6.

G-Cloud 6 has been launched as an initiative to redefine the way the UK public sector - central and local government - procures and operates ICT, ensuring transparent access to the latest technology, innovations and services.

The G-Cloud's marketplace of cloud services and their suppliers, called the Digital Marketplace, represents solutions assured for security, performance and service management. Sales through G-Cloud have now reached £467m, with £37m in January 2015 alone.

Commenting on the news, Chris Gledhill, Managing Director of PDMS commented, "PDMS' successful application to the G-Cloud 6 is a fantastic reflection of our sustained focus of being at the forefront of digitalising government services. SMEs have the ability to offer a favourably agile and specialised level of expertise to Government departments, and we are looking forward to seeing the number of SME contract awards increase through this latest G-Cloud iteration".   

As an early adopter of the G-Cloud and the Digital Marketplace (previously known as the CloudStore), PDMS has been awarded supplier status on each bi-annual iteration of the platform since its launch in 2012.  Since then, PDMS has worked extensively with many UK Government public sector organisations, helping them to meet the 'Digital by Default' agenda.
