Made Open is an approved G-Cloud 6 supplier.

It's official - Made Open can be procured by all organisations across the UK public sector.

Made Open, a ‘social network for social good’, has successfully been approved as a supplier to the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

The framework agreement with CCS supports the Government’s policy to centrally manage the procurement of common goods and services through an integrated commercial function at the heart of government.

The Made Open platform can be used by all organisations across the UK public sector including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.

Made Open is fully EU compliant and provides a social network where people, communities and organisations can unite, online. The platform invites users to share ideas, make connections, raise money, access volunteers, form groups and project teams. Registered users can take joint responsibility for resolving problems and lean into each other for support.

Services that have framework agreements are listed in the Digital Marketplace – a searchable database that helps public sector department’s source suppliers.

Through the Digital Marketplace, organisations can licence a ‘whitelabel’ version of Made Open for their bespoke use. Whitelabelling offers unique controls, customisation and 0% commission from crowdfunding.
