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.

It follows recent major deals for AWS with the Home Office and the Department for Work and Pensions.

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”.
