The informal Member State Cloud Cooperation Group (MSCCG), established under the European Alliance for Industrial Data, Edge and Cloud, is developing guidelines on public procurement of cloud computing services (Guidelines). Unfortunately, the work of this group has been characterised with a lack of transparency and industry engagement. To ensure that the Guidelines are realistic and implementable, we encourage authorities to engage in open dialogues with cloud providers before they are finalised. Learn how the European Commission can establish a resilient public procurement framework that accounts for issues on security, sovereignty, sustainability and skills, among others.
