Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and UKCloud have negotiated a new Memorandum Of Understanding (MoU) to reduce costs and further enhance cloud supplier choice and services for the public sector.
The new MoU will enable the delivery of flexible and secure multi-cloud services, underpinned by preferential commercial terms to ensure public sector organisations achieve maximum value for money.
This MoU ensures that you continue to have the benefit of choice and options of multi-cloud alongside the more proprietary options available from the cloud providers. Multi-cloud extends the typical sole focus of newly developed cloud-native applications to also support the modernisation of existing and legacy IT. This represents a significant opportunity for organisations to save cost, increase resilience and become more agile while transforming essential services for UK citizens.
UKCloud offers additional benefits that align with the One Government Cloud Strategy, including social value and a commitment to carbon negativity.
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.
