Applications for G-Cloud 10 will open in less than a month after the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) released a provisional timetable for the framework's implementation.
CRN reported in November that G-Cloud 9 will be extended by 12 months next week, with G-Cloud 10 not set to launch until May 2019.
However, earlier this month the government back-tracked on the G-Cloud 10 delay, and stated that the £600m framework would be launched this year.
It has now released a provisional timetable for G-Cloud 10:

5pm on Wednesday 9 May

5pm on Wednesday 16 May

It did caveat that the dates are "rough" and subject to change.
All G-Cloud 9 services will be removed when G-Cloud 10 services go live.
