The law firm Bevan Brittan LLP has become an approved supplier on the latest version of the Government’s Digital Marketplace.

G-Cloud 9 is a database of organisations through which central and local government bodies can source cloud commodity services. The operators Crown Commercial Service (‘CCS’) awarded Bevan Brittan a place to provide cloud support (‘Lot 3’).

The firm advises clients in the public, private and third sectors on intellectual property and ICT projects and contracts. This involves a range of professional and commercial law services including data protection, procurement law, outsourcing, liabilities, project management and governance.

Bevan Brittan partner Richard Lane said:

“We are naturally delighted to have been awarded a place under this latest version of the Digital Marketplace initiative.

“Our IT and cloud computing team will be able to provide clients a range of ongoing legal support around planning, set-up and migration, testing and training – in their transition to cloud-based information and hosting services.

“This new version of G-Cloud is designed to help public sector organisations better find the cloud computer support they need, and Bevan Brittan will aim to ensure its services are transparent and accessible to its clients.”

The most recent G-Cloud figures on the CCS website show total spending through the framework to date to be just under £1.7bn as of November 2016, 77 per cent of which was spent by central government and the remaining 23 per cent by the wider public sector.
