The UK government signed a three-year memorandum of understanding with Microsoft, dubbed Digital Transformation Arrangement 2021 (DTA21). The agreement encompasses products like Azure Arc, Synapse and Cognitive Services, as well as Teams, Power Platform, Dynamics 365 and Microsoft 365. As part of the agreement, Microsoft will provide both Premier and Unified Support services for public sector organizations and new customers. Additionally, it will also provide Solution Assessments, Technical Skills for Business and implementation assistance through the FastTrack and Azure Migration programs.

Working with Microsoft, the UK government has increasingly emphasized cloud services since it adopted its Cloud First policy in 2013. Building on the UK’s One Government Cloud Strategy and the Digital Data and Technology strategy, the agreement is intended to improve digital capabilities and assist the country during its recovery from Covid-19.
