Amazon Web Services Cloud Framework Agreement
Amazon Web Services Cloud Framework Agreement (AWS) is an all-of-government agreement that covers existing and new licensing of the AWS cloud services catalogue.
The Amazon Web Services Cloud Framework Agreement expires in August 2022. This agreement will be replaced by the new AWS Cloud Services Agreement (ACSA).
The AWS Cloud Framework Agreement allows eligible government agencies to buy public cloud services from AWS under standardised terms.
The agreement leverages the scale of New Zealand’s government agencies as a single customer. The agreement's simplified contractual processes saves your agency time and resources.

The Amazon Cloud Framework Agreement is not a common capability agreement. This means your organisation may need to consider a primary procurement to procure goods and services from the Amazon Cloud Framework Agreement. Please refer to the Government Procurement Rules for further advice.
Adopting agencies buying new licences or cloud services are required to undertake procurement obligations and risk and assurance requirements.
