Parity is pleased to announce it has been approved as a supplier on the latest version of the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS), cloud procurement framework G-Cloud 9 (G9). Only certified suppliers who meet the specific requirements in providing secure services for enterprise environments are accepted.

The G-Cloud agreement supports the Government’s policy to centrally manage the procurement of common goods and services through an integrated commercial function at the heart of government. As part of the Digital Marketplace, G-Cloud offers the whole of the public sector an easy solution to sourcing IT solutions and consultants.

Parity has been selected to supply under Lot 3 of the framework, Cloud Support (SCS) having previously supplied a broad range of consultancy expertise through previous G-Cloud frameworks. the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has replaced the previous four lots used to categorise services and replace them with the following classifications:

  • Cloud Hosting
  • Cloud Software
  • Cloud Support

Parity have been early adopters of Cloud Services and have successfully supported many of their clients with the transition into the Cloud arena.

Andy Ogg, Parity Consultancy Services Managing Director, stated, “We are delighted to be recognised as a leading provider of cloud services. Parity has been working in the public and commercial sector for over 45 years, achieving a place on G-Cloud 9 is a recognition of Parity’s established track record and on-going work with the public sector.

The G-Cloud programme has been developed to transform the way in which the public sector purchases Information and Communications Technology, with access to the right skills and solutions, UK government clients can operate more competitively, with G9 continuing to support the process through simplified buying process for government departments and managers.
