Total G-Cloud revenue smashed through the £200m barrier last month, according to the Cabinet Office, which said more still needs to be done to raise the framework's profile.
In June, the total sales through the scheme – which kicked off in June 2012 – reached £217.4m, with the average monthly spend for the last quarter reaching £20m.
Of the total G-Cloud sales to date, 55 per cent by value and 59 per cent by volume have been awarded to SMBs.
G-Cloud director Tony Singleton said although the sales figures are excellent, the wider impact of the scheme should not be underestimated.
"It is important to remember that G-Cloud is more than just about sales," he said on the G-Cloud blog. "Both G-Cloud and the Digital Services framework are programmes with the potential to radically transform the way that central government and the wider public sector deliver their digital services."
He pointed out the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, which is the first UK authority to have moved to an entirely cloud-based infrastructure, after spending £100,000 – partly through G-Cloud – getting everything up and running.
"This support from local authorities goes to show that G-Cloud really is for everyone," Singleton added.
But he admitted that more needs to be done to raise the profile of the framework and its benefits.
"I was asked at a Civil Service Live panel session what I saw as the biggest challenge over the next 12 months [and] this is, without a doubt, getting the message further across both central government and the wider public sector about the truly transformational benefits that cloud-first [strategies] can deliver," he said.
"It is now up to us to show that the Digital Marketplace can make it clearer, simpler and faster to do this."
