Matt Goodrich: FedRAMP Creates Playbook to Help Accelerate Agency Cloud Adoption

Matt Goodrich

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program has created a playbook meant to help agencies navigate through the government’s cloud authorization process, GCN Magazine reported Monday.

The FedRAMP Agency Authorization Playbook describes three phases of the authority-to-operate process, as well as the roles cloud service providers, agencies and third-party assessment organizations should play.

Matt Goodrich, director of FedRAMP, told GCN in an email the playbook is designed to help agencies address cost and schedule challenges related to cloud adoption efforts.

The program updated its provisional authorization process and “tailored” baseline earlier this year as part of efforts to simplify the approval process for commercial cloud offerings.
