management and high-tech engineering, is pleased to announce that Sogeti has
been awarded a contract for Lot4: Specialist Cloud Services on the G-Cloud iii

The G-Cloud is a cross-government initiative, under the direction of the Chief
Information Officer Delivery Board. The scheme, now in its second year, has
already proved itself to be amodel for success, making it much easier for ICT
suppliers - particularly SMEs - to do business with Government organisations
through a simpler and more efficient procurement framework.

Sogeti's software testing and Quality Assurance services have been available
for purchase under the previous G-Cloud ii framework since 26th October 2012,
through the HM Government G-Cloud CloudStore - a searchable database that
enables government agencies and buyers to match their ICT requirements with
the best-fit technologies and approved service providers.

The CloudStore hosted around 1,700 services when Sogeti first joined the
G-Cloud initiative in 2012. This latest framework now offers more than 7,000
technology services split into four areas - Infrastructure as a Service
(IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as Service (SaaS) and, finally,
Specialist Cloud Services (SCS) under which Sogeti's services will be listed.
The area of Specialist Cloud Services already includes services such as test
process assessments and improvement plans (TPI), accelerated automated
functional testing , test assurance , training , managed testing , and
transformation services . The new framework, G-Cloud iii , will continue to
list all of the above services, but it will also include agile development
testing and iSQI certified training courses on agile testing methods.

Brian Shea, CEO of Sogeti UK & Ireland, concluded: "We're delighted to have
been awarded supplier status for G iii and have the opportunity to offer our
new agile testing and training services through the CloudStore. The addition
of our agile services ensures that our customers have access to the right
skills and support to enable them to deliver agile projects successfully. With
this latest release, we are thrilled to be able to increase the breadth of
services available to our public sector clients, and continue to support them
with cost effective and flexible testing and Quality Assurance services."
