The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program office is set to announce the first batch of cloud service providers that completed the FedRAMP accelerated process to authorization, Nextgov reported Tuesday.

FedRAMP Director Matt Goodrich told a forum held by MeriTalk that his office expects to release the list of cloud vendors within the next two weeks, Frank Konkel reports.

“We’re now talking under four months for the first authorization,” Goodrich told the event, according to the report.

The FedRAMP team first pitched the idea of changing the readiness assessment process for cloud service providers in May to help reduce authorization wait times for vendors.
