Ashley Mahan: FedRAMP Adopts ‘Open-Door Policy’ to Help Address Agency Cloud IT Needs

cloudITAshley Mahan, agency evangelist for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, told Federal Times in an interview published Wednesday she will reach out to agencies that need assistance to use FedRAMP-compliant cloud products and services.

“We have a very open-door policy,” Mahan said to Federal Times reporter Aaron Boyd.

She added the FedRAMP team considers federal agencies, cloud service providers and third-party assessment organizations as partners in efforts to accelerate government cloud implementations.

FedRAMP created the evangelist role after the organization found during an outreach initiative last summer that many agencies and cloud vendors were seeking a person to act as a touchpoint between them and the FedRAMP office, according to Mahan.

“[Agencies] have a lot of questions, and great questions, and I want to be able to provide an answer to their questions so they can make their business decisions,” she told Boyd.
