The UK’s leading independent holistic security consultancy today confirmed availability through the UK Government’s G-Cloud 8 framework
Advent IM, the UK’s leading independent, holistic security consultancy, announced today it has been accepted onto the UK Government’s G-Cloud 8 framework. G-Cloud 8 is part of The Crown Commercial Service (CCS), which acts on behalf of the Crown to drive savings for the taxpayer and improve the quality of commercial and procurement activity.
Advent IM’s Cyber/Information and Physical Security consultancy services have long been enjoyed by public sector users, via CCS G-Cloud frameworks and this is a continuation and addition to their appearance on previous G-Cloud versions. Services are also still available through CCS G-Cloud 7.
Operations Director, Julia McCarron said, “We are very pleased to appear in the new iteration of G-Cloud and we support the direct procurement and cost saving approach that it represents for public bodies. Our continued availability on the G-Cloud framework means that our services are much easier to access for many government departments and pubic bodies and it has simplified the procurement process for both parties. We have been involved in public sector projects for many years and being directly available through CCS means we can continue to maintain and grow those excellent working relationships.”
CCS works with both departments and organisations across the whole of the public sector to ensure maximum value is extracted from every commercial relationship and improve the quality of service delivery. The CCS goal is to become the “go-to” place for expert commercial and procurement services. Advent IM offers a range of bespoke security consulting and training services to public and private sector and is also a listed Cyber Security Solution Supplier to HM Government, through the Department for Culture, Media & Sport.
