The Government Digital Service (GDS) is set to establish a Crown Hosting Service in a bid to save £530 million a year by 2018. The new service will consolidate existing hosting services across Whitehall departments and provide one single service.
A new blog posted on the G-Cloud website states: “It will be a month before the framework goes live and we can tell you how it’s gone. But it’s been really positive to see suppliers coming back as well as new suppliers looking to join us.”

Peter Ziegler of the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design has written a blog post for Government Digital Service about a joint project between the two organisations to help meet the digital needs of older people via assisted digital support.
GDS has said that the tender for the fourth iteration of the G-Cloud will be published at the end of the month in the Official Journal of the European Union.
