The Cloud Center of Excellence seeks federal and industry input on four working documents about cloud acquisition, funding challenges and security matters, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.
CCoE’s working documents include a cloud dictionary which covers terms from the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.
The documents also include contract language considerations for the Defense Department and civilian agencies as well as a Cloud Adoption Survival, Tips, Lessons Learned and Experiences guidance document which aims to help acquisition professionals evaluate available cloud systems.
David Bray, outgoing chief information officer of the Federal Communications Commission, said that he and other members of the CCoE anticipate a shift towards a cloud-first vision for government.
The solicitation comes at a time when the Senate passed the Modernizing Government Technology act in the Defense Authorization bill.
The MGT Act will establish a working capital fund for each agency based on savings generated from the consolidation of data centers and the migration to cloud environments.
