How Can We Help You?

G-Cloud Procurement Services from Advice Cloud.

Advice Cloud is a public sector procurement specialist that offers a focused portfolio of G-Cloud-related services. As experienced buyers, we have used the framework to buy services on behalf of public sector authorities since August 2012. This has given us a thorough understanding of the G-Cloud procurement process, the supplier landscape, and the challenges that you may face in using the framework and switching to cloud-based services.

We provide organisations across the public sector with either support for specific parts of the process, or an end-to-end service.

Our G-Cloud expertise covers:

  • Procurement strategy and processes
  • Using the Crown Commercial Services G-Cloud buying process
  • e-Procurement systems integration
  • Transitioning to and specifying cloud-based services
  • Early market engagement programmes
  • Supplier due diligence
  • Contracts and clarifications
  • Training
  • Post-procurement support for management and adoption
  • Tower model and Service Integration and Management (SIAM) of cloud suppliers

Included in all of our services is a wide and detailed knowledge base on making best use of the framework, which also gives you access to use cases and templates. At the heart of every engagement is a focus on quickly delivering clearly defined outcomes. Our aim is to be a complementary, value-adding service that increases your in-house capabilities to make best use of the G-Cloud framework in the future.

  • Chris and I worked together on a few procurements that he managed at Defra. My experience is that Chris is highly effective in his work; he recognises diverse organisational requirements and aims to provide balanced procurement advice. Chris is very keen on identifying and engaging relevant stakeholders in order to deliver a good service to the client and ensure that time is well spent. He is an excellent team worker and a good communicator. I would look forward to working with Chris again.
