GSA Updates Special Item Number for Cloud Services on IT Schedule 70

The General Services Administration revised a special item number on IT Schedule 70 to provide federal agencies access to information technology professional services related to cloud adoption and management.

The updated Cloud SIN 132-40 includes labor categories and services associated with cloud-related work such as assessment of cloud platforms, workload refactoring, migration of legacy systems to the cloud, DevOps and development of cloud-based applications, GSA said Monday. Such services could be added to the revised Cloud SIN through a new order or modification.

“Contractors may propose other types of relevant services, as long as they are specifically designed to work within and/or support the type of cloud products offered under 132-40,” the agency noted.

The updated Cloud SIN gives a clearer interpretation of the term “measured service,” which is one of the five essential characteristics of the cloud as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
