Suppliers will be able to start their applications for G-Cloud 9 (G9) in March. To help suppliers prepare their answers before applications open, we’re sharing the draft service questions and categories. Please note that there may be some changes to the questions and categories when G9 opens for applications. We will tell you if there are any changes.

The questions

As we mentioned in a blog post on Monday, the 3 lots for G-Cloud 9 will be:

  • cloud hosting
  • cloud software
  • cloud support

Each lot will have its own service questions.

Recently, we shared a survey with buyers and suppliers to test the set of categories that we’ve created for G9. Some users told us they’d like to look at the categories in more detail, so we’re sharing them in a flexible format that you can use for reviewing.
