G-Cloud is in favour of a new self-asserted security policy and will look to phase out Pan Government Accreditation (PGA) from July 30th 2014. G-Cloud framework suppliers will have until the aforementioned date to submit applications for PGA, before it moves aside completely to make space for the security system.
The Cabinet Office has said that it will not be accepting any more submissions for PGA from that date, the accreditation was deemed surplus to requirements on the framework, due to changes around security principles that were announced in April of this year.
You can join other public sector professionals to network and discuss G-Cloud at our Central Government Business & Technology 2014 event, Hotel Russell (London) on 25th September. Contact us to find out how you can sponsor or attend the event as a delegate.
