The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program’s website is being updated to include training modules designed to educate agencies and vendors about the approval process for cloud offerings, Federal Times reported Thursday.

Aaron Boyd writes Matthew Goodrich, FedRAMP director, said his office plans to unveil a dedicated FedRAMP portal in March with the goal of helping site visitors find information more easily.

“We’ll be focusing on reaching a broader audience and get into the agencies and vendors who haven’t quite grasped what FedRAMP is and how it benefits them,” Goodrich told an Association for Federal Information Resources Management-hosted panel discussion last week, Federal News Radio reported Friday

Emily Kopp reports the FedRAMP office is also preparing an acquisition guidance intended to help federal program managers incorporate cloud security compliance in contract requirements and solicitations.

Goodrich said the Chief Acquisition Officers Council and the Chief Information Officers Council will review the guidance before the document will be released for public feedback, according to the station.

FedRAMP also seeks comments on a draft high-impact baseline for security of sensitive government data and systems that run in a cloud environment.
