Phaedra Chrousos, a General Services Administration official, has said GSA has started to work with Federal CIO Tony Scott to update the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program four years after the agency created FedRAMP, FCW reported Thursday.
“The world changes quickly, and we should reimagine [FedRAMP],” said Chrousos, associate administrator of the office of citizen services and innovative technologies/18F digital services agency at GSA.
Bianca Spinosa writes Chrousos made the remarks after she delivered her speech at the National Contract Management Association’ symposium held Dec. 15.
FedRAMP is a governmentwide initiative that establishes standardized procedures for the evaluation and monitoring of cloud platforms and services.
Chrousos said her team has begun to address paper-based requirements associated with FedRAMP through the assessment of customers’ experiences with the program and that GSA’s 18F organization plans to introduce updates to the USAJobs website.
She also noted the efforts of the Office of Personnel Management’s Innovation Lab to enhance the federal government’s recruitment site, Spinosa reported.
