Forfront awarded G-Cloud 13 framework contract

Tailored e-shot™ packages available on G-Cloud 13 from November 2022.

Forfront, a UK-based software house, is delighted to announce that nine of their software solutions have been awarded with a G-Cloud 13 framework contract.  

Central and Local Government departments can use the G-Cloud framework to procure a range of software services with confidence. G-Cloud is run by the Crown Commercial Service, which supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services.  

This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the G-Cloud framework with over £1.5 billion in commercial benefits having been achieved for public sector customers since its launch in 2012. It is expected that G-Cloud will help deliver around £200 million in commercial benefits this year alone. 

The G-Cloud agreement supports the Government’s Cloud First policy, which was introduced in 2013 to encourage public sector organisations to evaluate and pursue cloud-based services, which are less costly than on-premises alternatives.
