What is this panel?
The Cloud Services Panel is a panel of suppliers who provide the following:
software as a service
platform as a service
infrastructure as a service
specialist cloud services such as consulting
The term ‘as a service’ means that buyers do not buy the software, platform or infrastructure itself. Instead, buyers pay suppliers for the ability to use these products.Back to top

This policy has been replaced by the Secure Cloud Strategy. The strategy focuses on preparing agencies for using cloud technology and on supporting them as they start to use it.
Government buyers who use this panel must still comply with the following policies and processes:
- Commonwealth Procurement Rules
- the PGPA Act 2013
