Bunker in G-Cloud

The Bunker , provider of Cloud , Hosting , Colocation and IT services has been selected as a provider of Specialist Cloud Services under the UK Government Procurement Service G-Cloud framework. Under lots 1 and 4 The Bunker is able to offer specialist services across Infrastructure, Software and Cloud Consulting to a range of government departments, including; the NHS, local authorities, emergency services and other public bodies.

The G-Cloud Programme is a cross government initiative and aims to streamline the government’s interaction with its technology suppliers, to achieve economies of scale. The Cabinet Office is targeting half of all new IT spend to go through the G-Cloud by 2015, and estimates it is already saving some departments up to 90pc in IT spend.

Graham Spivey Sales and Marketing Director at The Bunker said: “Cloud computing has brought about a step change in the economics and sustainability of IT procurement, a message reiterated earlier this month with the Cabinet Office’s announcement that the government now has a cloud-first buying policy. Our inclusion on the G Cloud framework is a clear demonstration of the UK government’s commitment to leveraging innovation through the diverse and valuable knowledge pool that sits within the nation’s SMEs.”

And Peter Ford, Business Consultant at The Bunker added: “The Bunker is delighted to have been selected by the Government Procurement Service to be a supplier on the G-Cloud framework. We look forward to engaging and working with a wide range of public sector bodies on some exciting projects.”

The Bunker operates data centres housed within two former MOD nuclear bunkers in Newbury, Berkshire and Ash, Kent. For further information, visit, www.thebunker.net
