Inspector General: DoD Lacks Central Cloud Service Contracts List

DoD logo resizeThe Defense Department inspector general has released a report that indicates the department has not maintained a list of cloud computing service contracts.

DoD’s IG said Monday the absence of a cloud computing service contracts list resulted a lack of standardization in the definition for cloud computing and develop a repository for cloud computing service contracts.

The report aims to identify DoD components that conducted a cost-benefit analysis prior to the acquisition of cloud computing services.

IG recommends in the report that the Pentagon’s chief information officer establish a department-wide cloud computing definition in order to identify DoD component cloud computing service contracts.

IG also suggests the creation of an integrated repository to provide information on DoD cloud computing service contracts.
