Today I received an official announcement that the FedRAMP officially launched today:
“As of 9am on Wednesday, June 6th, 2012, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Program Management Office (PMO) achieved Initial Operating Capability. As a part of IOC, the FedRAMP PMO is now accepting applications for provisional authorization of cloud systems. The application is currently housed on fedramp.gov and can be accessed via the following URL: http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/125991“
So now all those cloud providers can chop chop their way into the federal government GSA Schedule. Happy Selling!
