G-Cloud 12

Purchase cloud-based computing services such as hosting, software and cloud support, including many off-the-shelf, pay-as-you-go cloud solutions.


26/08/22 – CCS has taken the decision to vary the framework term of G-Cloud 12, meaning it will remain open for customers to call off from for two months after its current end date, until 27 November.

This will ensure that customers can continue to buy the services they need and will give us the additional time to ensure that when G-Cloud 13 is launched on 9 November, it will deliver the best experience for customers and suppliers.

23/04/2021 – We are extending G-cloud 12, the new expiry date is now 27 September 2022.


G-Cloud 12 helps customers in the UK public sector find and buy cloud computing services. 

This agreement will run for 12 months from 28 September 2020. We may extend the agreement up to a maximum of 12 months after this date. 

Any call-off will have an initial maximum duration of 24 months. You are allowed two extension options of up to 12 months each and must specify this in the initial contract terms.

The total call-off length should not be for more than 48 months (4 years). This includes the initial call-off duration plus the two extension options. Certain restrictions apply to central government contract extensions.
