Cartesian Accepted as a Supplier for the United Kingdom Government Procurement Framework, G-Cloud 7

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., March 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cartesian® (NASDAQ:CRTN), a specialist provider of consulting services and managed solutions to the global communications, technology and digital media sector, has been accepted as a supplier for the United Kingdom’s (UK) latest government procurement framework, G-Cloud 7.

G-Cloud 7 is the seventh installment of the procurement framework, which allows suppliers to receive government contracts related to cloud-based services, without the need for participating in a full tender or competition procurement process. Suppliers define the services they offer on G-Cloud’s online store, the “Digital Marketplace,” which are then reviewed by the government’s agencies and departments for selection.

The framework is part of the UK’s broader initiatives to accelerate and simplify the process of cloud-based IT procurement, while making it easier for suppliers to sell their services to the public sector.

Cartesian will join a pre-approved list of providers under the ‘Specialist Cloud Services’ group, which is comprised of companies providing consulting solutions in the cloud domain. Cartesian will offer a range of cloud strategic planning services, including data analytics and cloud adoption studies. In particular, the company will help governmental organizations identify key opportunities for cloud implementation, as well as the development of a strategic roadmap toward full migration.

“For more than 25 years, we have successfully delivered strategy consulting services to some of the world’s largest companies and organizations,” said Peter Woodward, CEO of Cartesian. “By joining the G-Cloud 7 framework, we are expanding our reach in the UK public sector market, where we see a number of new large-scale opportunities to pursue. We are excited to extend our expertise toward helping the UK government develop robust cloud adoption strategies, while addressing the challenges and risks inherent in a full transition to the cloud.”
