Vessel HQ Awarded Place upon UK Government's G-Cloud 6 Framework

Oceans HQ Ltd, provider of the maritime & flag state platform 'Vessel HQ' is delighted to announce the award of a place as a supplier on the UK Government's G-Cloud 6 Framework. This means that the Vessel HQ ship registry and flag state maritime platform can be purchased by public sector agencies through the government's Digital Marketplace, an online store where suppliers offer their services to the public sector via the G-Cloud framework.

G-Cloud 6 is a pan government collaborative framework agreement for use by UK public-sector bodies. It is managed by the Crown Commercial Service, and includes central government departments and related bodies and agencies, non-departmental public bodies, NHS trusts and local authorities.

This follows Oceans HQ Ltd's earlier placement on G-Cloud 5, a prior iteration of the framework, and is the latest step in our public sector activities. The G-Cloud and associated Digital Marketplace simplifies the need for the public sector to tender competitively for the services covered by the framework. The UK has some of the highest costs for public sector tender processes in Europe, often costing over £45,000 per process.

G-Cloud 6 is an important development in public sector procurement. We are looking forward to working closely with public sector bodies that can now easily access the Vessel HQ platform and related services.
