HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has taken up a three-year, £94 million contract for cloud services with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
It arranged the deal, which came into operation at the beginning of this month, as a G-Cloud call-off contract under the company’s One Government Value Agreement (OGVA) for the public sector.
It replaces a compute cloud service agreement that went into operation as recently as September of last year.
The contract notice, which includes redactions, indicates minimum spends of $40.1 million in each of the next three years, covering cloud hosting, software and support. It also involves three lots, for cloud compute infrastructure, a bring your own licence service, and support, managed services and training.
Analyst company TechMarketView commented that HMRC was the biggest spending customer for AWS via G-Cloud in 2020, accounting for £42.7 million, and that “agreeing a new deal under the OGVA was an important piece of business for buyer and seller alike”.
