“We already serve well over 300 public bodies, including councils, the NHS and many educational institutions, so securing placement on G-Cloud 13 is key for our business.”

Andrew Roberts, Managing Director, Avoira

What is G-Cloud 13

G-Cloud 13 embraces the supply of cloud hosting, software and support, including services such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). It is the latest in a line of CCS cloud frameworks which have secured business worth in the region of £10 billion for accredited suppliers. Launched this month, the new framework will run for three years, with a possible extension to contracts of 12 months.

“Securing CCS accreditation is key to unlocking the door to high value public sector contracts,” Avoira’s managing director Andrew Roberts. “With public money at stake, the bar is set understandably high for framework entry. Suppliers are required to satisfy stringent requirements in relation to their expertise, service delivery and financial stability.”

“We already serve well over 300 public bodies, including councils, the NHS and many educational institutions, so securing placement on G-Cloud 13 is key for our business.”

“Without accreditation we’d be ineligible for tenders carrying a collective value of some £4 billion.”

CCS frameworks deliver significant benefits to public procurement professionals. These include reduced costs, access to the latest technologies, compliance guarantees and flexible sourcing of products and solutions.

Avoira, which operates from sites in Bristol, Bury, Leeds, London and Warrington, is already listed on a wide range of public sector procurement platforms. These include Crescent Purchasing Consortium’s Audio Visual Equipment and Installation Services and Telecommunications frameworks, the Telephony Services category within the Scottish Government’s Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS), Kent Commercial Services’ Audio Visual Solutions framework and Procurement for All’s Telecommunications DPS.
