cloudBuy named approved supplier for the UK Government LASA framework
cloudBuy plc (AIM: CBUY), the cloud eCommerce marketplace, has been appointed to the Local Authority Software Applications (LASA) framework. The four-year framework will replace the current Local Government Software Application Solutions (LGSAS) framework, which came to an end in July 2014.
The market for software as a service for local government is currently worth around £500 million per year and the bulk of these services are expected to be provided through the LASA framework.
The framework will be complementary to the G-Cloud framework. Whereas G-Cloud services are commodity-based with contract lengths up to a maximum of two years, LASA contracts will be business-critical and have contract lengths of more than three years.
cloudBuy has been approved as a provider for 3 lots:
Ronald Duncan, Chairman of cloudBuy commented: "We are pleased to have been awarded a place on this framework. Increasingly, public sector is turning to software as a service and LASA replaces a well used framework. This award also recognises our payment processing capability, which allied to our ecommerce and emarketplace solutions, gives us a competitive advantage."
