Bidhive awarded Crown Commercial service G-Cloud 13 contract

December 2, 2022

Bidhive, an award winning bid management platform for supplier tendering, today announced that it has been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) G-Cloud 13 agreement which went live on 9th November 2022.

This contract follows Bidhive’s prior appointment as a supplier on the G-Cloud 12 network, where it gained contracts with public sector suppliers including a National Health Service (NHS) foundation trust.

Replacing G-Cloud 12, G-Cloud 13 builds on its predicessor’s framework, providing the public sector with the latest cloud technologies and innovations while meeting the stringent standards and criteria set out by the Crown Commercial Service.

Bidhive’s CEO Nyree McKenzie said the inclusion on the framework highlights the importance of making the bidding process more efficient for market participants to reduce the cost of winning work, while lowering barriers to competition.

“Inefficient processes continue to impact value for money outcomes achieved by governments when competition is stifled and costs need to be recouped through price premiums,” she said.

“These factors directly impact decision-making and the overall timeframe taken to complete the procurement process”.

McKenzie said while open procurement has opened up opportunities for suppliers to bid for service provision to the public sector, it also represents a significant risk to incumbent suppliers who could lose a bid to other independent public bodies and third sector providers.

“Bidhive helps suppliers to better identify opportunities and risks on the horizon so they can give careful consideration to whether a commercial tendering opportunity should be pursued. Adding to this is access to market and business intelligence as well as collaboration tools that help them deliver higher quality, more financially viable tender submissions.”

Bidhive can be found in Lot 2, Cloud Software (SaaS).
