  • cost savings (because government demand for datacentre space is aggregated)
  • time savings (because there’s no need to manage multiple supplier tenders)
  • simple, transparent ‘pay-for-what-you-use’ pricing so usage can be scaled as required
  • choice of duration commitments that can be ended early without charge
  • volume rebates as volumes rise
  • robust performance service-level agreements, including power uptime
  • strong step-in rights for government to ensure continuity of service if required

data that does not have to be bought also public owned data, can be obtained via the freedom of information from

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides public access to information held by public authorities.

It does this in two ways:

  • public authorities are obliged to publish certain information about their activities; and

  • members of the public are entitled to request information from public authorities.

The Act covers any recorded information that is held by a public authority in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and by UK-wide public authorities based in Scotland. Information held by Scottish public authorities is covered by Scotland’s own Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Public authorities include government departments, local authorities, the NHS, state schools and police forces. However, the Act does not necessarily cover every organisation that receives public money. For example, it does not cover some charities that receive grants and certain private sector organisations that perform public functions.

Recorded information includes printed documents, computer files, letters, emails, photographs, and sound or video recordings
