Benefex accepted to G-Cloud 12 framework24.11.20
OneHub makes the cut for the sixth year in a row
Benefex has announced its commitment to providing accessible technology to the public sector, through its acceptance to the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) new G-Cloud 12 framework.
The initiative, which works to save time and money for the public sector, is intended to simplify procurement through nominating Cloud service providers who have passed a pre-approved set of criteria, so organisations can find suppliers without the need to run a full tender. Through G-Cloud, CCS delivers savings to the front-line services and the taxpayer by aggregating spend and driving increased value.
The G-Cloud service is a network of over 5,200 suppliers, and can be accessed by organisations across the UK public sector, including health, emergency services, defence, not-for-profits, and central government and local government. It 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. The set criteria that providers are required to meet includes standards of reliability and security, meaning public sector bodies can easily select suppliers, knowing these standards are already met regarding commodity information technology services which use cloud computing.
Will Davidson, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Benefex, is thrilled with their continued commitment to meeting the G-Cloud’s standards:
"In 2020, more than at any other time, the public sector has faced huge pressure to meet exponential demands of its services. Inevitably, front-line resources and public sector employees themselves have been under a colossal amount of strain this year. Engaging with them, and helping this sector out where we can has never been so important. OneHub’s acceptance into G-Cloud 12 is hopefully one aspect in which we are making it easier for public sector clients to access our market-leading platform and positively impact employee engagement, recruitment and retention through such a challenging time."
The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) works with both departments and organisations across the whole of the public sector to ensure maximum value is extracted from every commercial relationship and improve the quality of service delivery. The CCS goal is to become the “go-to” place for expert commercial and procurement services.
