The UK's Home Office has signed a new contract with Amazon Web Services (AWS) valued at more than £450 million ($568.64m).

The agreement will last for three years starting on December 1, and has been signed under the G-Cloud 13 framework agreement.

Little information about the deal has been shared, with the description on the contract posting saying no more than "Public Cloud Hosting Services."

The Home Office signed a similar deal in 2020, valued at the time at £100m ($130m) and which would extend its existing cloud hosting deal with AWS. That agreement was set to continue for four years, making this latest agreement fall at the renewal stage.

Earlier this year, the UK's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs signed a £20.8 million (~$25m) with AWS which would see the latter handling Defra's cloud hosting, its ‘bring-your-own-license’ software management service, and will see the cloud giant offering support, managed and professional services, and training to Defra employees.
