The General Services Administration has announced plans to implement changes to a special item number for cloud platforms and services on the Information Technology Schedule 70.
A FedBizOpps notice posted Monday says the proposed changes to SIN 132-40 include the addition of IT professional services to help agencies facilitate cloud adoption and migration efforts.
Those professional services will include cloud platform assessments; workload refactoring for cloud platforms; cloud tool preparation; cloud platform migration; and cloud governance support.
The updated cloud SIN seeks to clarify the “measured service” characteristic for cloud products.
“In short, SIN 132-40 now clarifies that cloud products must have discrete ‘pay as you go’ measurements of appropriate compute resources to ensure the government realizes the benefit of cloud deployments,” according to the request for information.
The proposed changes to SIN 132-40 also intend to remove and transition evaluation factors to CI-FSS-152-N additional factors for new offerors under IT Schedule 70.
Responses to the RFI are due Oct. 9.
