Datacom Cloud Framework Agreement
The Datacom Cloud Framework Agreement is an all-of-government agreement that covers Datacom’s public cloud and professional services.
The Datacom Cloud Framework Agreement allows eligible government agencies to buy public cloud services and professional services from Datacom, under standardised terms.
- Datacom’s public cloud services are delivered by data centres in New Zealand operating under New Zealand legal jurisdiction.
- The agreement leverages the scale of New Zealand’s government agencies as a single customer.
- The agreement provides agencies with negotiated consumption-based discounts for public cloud services.
- The agreement simplifies contractual processes for agencies.

Adopting the service
Eligible agencies can adopt the Datacom Cloud Framework Agreement by co-signing an affiliate Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with DIA and completing a sign-up form with Datacom.
To request the MoU and agreement sign-up form, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Datacom Cloud Framework Agreement is not a common capability agreement. This means your organisation may need to consider a primary procurement to obtain goods and services from the Datacom Cloud Framework Agreement.
Risk, assurance and fees
Adopting agencies buying new cloud services are required to undertake:
- procurement obligations
- risk and assurance requirements.
A small administration fee of 1.75% of the total spend by agencies will be applicable. This fee is used to manage the contract on behalf of all government agencies.
