Matt Goodrich: Agencies to Evaluate Low-Impact Cloud Services Under FedRAMP Tailored Baseline

Matt Goodrich

Matt Goodrich, director of the General Services Administration‘s Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, has said agencies will play a role in the assessment of low-impact, software-as-a-service offerings via the program’s “tailored” certification process, GCN reported Wednesday.

Sarah Friedman writes GSA introduced the FedRAMP Tailored baseline in an effort to help providers complete the approval process for low-risk cloud services within approximately four weeks.

“Agencies will be doing a good percentage more of the work during the assessments to reduce the cost —  not only for vendors but also to reduce cost for agencies to begin to use a service,” Goodrich was quoted as saying by GCN.

The FedRAMP office plans to gather input from cloud service providers and agencies on the proposed baseline during virtual and in-person forums that are scheduled to be held Tuesday in Washington, D.C., Friedman reported.

GSA extended the deadline for a public comment period from March 17 to April 24 and aims to implement new regulations for low-impact cloud service offerings in late summer.
