Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL7457, tabled on 1 May 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many cloud services contracts that were previously delivered by British cloud services providers for the Department of Health and Social Care are now delivered by multinational cloud service providers; what is the value of those contracts; and what are the names of the previous providers.

The Department's central procurement system does not have a separate category for cloud-hosting contracts nor any central means of consistently identifying cloud-hosting services. To obtain this information would incur disproportionate cost.
