18F Launches Interagency Project to Accelerate Govt Adoption of Commercial Tech

The General Services Administration‘s 18F organization has introduced an interagency project to help federal agencies implement commercial software products faster through an updated authority-to-operate certification process, FCW reported Thursday.

Project Boise aims to update the federal government’s software security compliance process that require an agency to obtain an ATO and comply with additional requirements prior to adoption of new commercial software.

The report said 18F also seeks to collaborate with agency chief information security officers, cybersecurity policymakers and private sector organizations in efforts to accelerate turnaround time of ATO certifications.

GSA partnered with the White House’s Office of American Innovation and the American Technology Council to automate the ATO process under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.
