Adopting the service
Eligible agencies can adopt the Google Cloud Framework Agreement by co-signing an affiliate Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with DIA and an Eligible Agency Agreement with Google.
To request the MoU and agreement sign-up details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Google Cloud Framework Agreement is not a common capability agreement. This means your organisation may need to consider a primary procurement to procure goods and services from the Google 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.
