Matt Goodrich: FedRAMP Training Enrollees Tripled Over 6 Months

cloudThe U.S. General Services Administration has concluded a six-month study of the government-wide, cloud computing-focused Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program to gather feedback from clients on the initiative.

FedRAMP had a 340-percent increase in training enrollees and the number of authorizations rose by 50 percent, FedRAMP Director Matt Goodrich wrote in a GSA blog post released Thursday.

GSA’s FedRAMP office went through a redesign with the Joint Authorization Board to have provisional authorizations complete in less than six months, according to Goodrich.

“We are going to begin hosting a series of events over the coming months to roll out our redesigned process and vet some of the key elements with you,” said

“These events will signify a turning point in our ‘listening tour’ by moving into ‘action mode.’ In order to make sure we get everyone’s feedback — CSP’s, 3PAOs, and Government — we’ll be collaborating with ACT-IAC on these events and working closely with their Cloud Community of Interest.”
