CSPs are required to achieve a FedRAMP Ready designation within 60 days after they obtain prioritization status. Providers then can coordinate with JAB within 90 days of being prioritized.

For the latest round, interested vendors will have until July 13 to submit their business cases to [email protected]

Teletrac Navman’s Fleet Management Solutions subsidiary, Infor, ManTech International, Monster Government Solutions and Xerox received priority status in February to work with JAB.
