Gov splashed £98k through CloudStore in July

A third of it on a little-known SME called Microsoft

Public sector organisations spent just over £98,000 through the government CloudStore framework in July, mainly on software.

The biggest spenders were the following:

  • The Student Loans Company, which spend nearly £32,000 on consultancy with Quo Imus.
  • The Cabinet Office spent £24,500 with software developer Apto Solutions.
  • The Department for International Development spent £20,600 with Microsoft.

To date, the biggest spender has been the Ministry of Justice which spent £251,000 with cloud-based collaboration platform supplier Huddle, according to the G-Cloud website.

The lowest value spend was just £5.00, spent by Department for Culture Media and Sport with Fubra last month.

The total of £98,000 for July represents a drop from nearly £460,000 the previous month and £555,800 in April.
