The General Services Administration issued a request for information Tuesday asking industry about the possibility of having cloud computing brokers work with agencies and cloud providers, Federal News Radio reports.
In the RFI, GSA said it wants to know if industry is ready to deliver a cloud broker model and how it could address cloud security issues.
Brokers would mediate between cloud providers and consumers, according to Esther Carey’s report.
GSA also wants industry input on how service-level agreements can be used in cloud computing and other options to assist agencies in migrating to the cloud.
The agency will host an industry day Aug. 2 in Arlington, Va. and responses are due to the agency by Aug. 17.
At the seminar, speakers from GSA and other federal agencies will provide brief presentations about their perspective on the future of cloud computing and how industry can help the government move to the cloud.
