1 min read

The Small Business Administration’s inspector general issued the evaluation report highlighting that SBA needs to improve how it handles risk management, security, data mobility and information technology investments as well the adoption of federal standards to efficiently move data to the cloud and reduce disruption during migration, according to the IG report published Tuesday.

The federal watchdog analyzed SBA’s cloud systems inventory and migration efforts and oversight from fiscal year 2017 to 2018. The IG recommends that the agency improve its cloud inventory and monitoring controls, data ownership portability and interoperability and documentation of cloud cost savings and service level requirements to support and secure its migration efforts. 

SBA Inspector General Hannibal Ware said the agency agreed with all recommendations. Top SBA officials have yet to submit a report on the implementation of final actions to improve cloud migration.
