G-Cloud has a low barrier to entry for all suppliers, including SMEs and is refreshed on an annual basis with supplier evaluation based on a suppliers declaration against a number of key criteria. Therefore the majority of suppliers - providing they sell services which align to the scope of the agreement - are able to apply and be awarded a place on G-Cloud framework agreements.</p> more like this
