The MoU aims to remove barriers to the adoption of cloud based services within the UK public sector and drive innovation that will improve essential public services for UK citizens. It is valid for 3 years (from 22 May 2020) and allows eligible public sector organisations to obtain preferential commercial terms to IBM’s published list prices for cloud services. These discounts are available for any new cloud contracts and for the term of those contracts. 

Establishing new routes to market and supporting the digital ambitions of organisations across the entire public sector has been a strategic deliverable for CCS and this MoU marks a great milestone in delivering value and operational choice.
