The General Services Administration‘s 18F digital services team has received Federal Risk and Authorization Program Ready status for a cloud collaboration website the group built for government use.
18F said Monday it began to work toward the FedRAMP compliant evaluation process for cloud.gov and aims to obtain FedRAMP certification in November.
“Getting Provisional Authority to Operate from FedRAMP’s Joint Authorization Board will mean that all agencies will be able to confidently authorize use of cloud.gov without each agency needing to put cloud.gov through its own lengthy evaluation process,” 18F noted.
Cloud.gov is a platform-as-a-service designed to help federal government teams develop and release products and updates in a timely manner and runs on Amazon Web Services.
18F developed the website in an effort to help agencies comply with federal regulations when they deliver digital services.
