The program management office (PMO) for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) has launched an initiative that seeks to train liaisons in sharing resources and knowledge about the cloud certification process.
FedRAMP said Wednesday that the PMO will implement a “train-the-trainer” model for liaisons at more than 30 participating agencies as part of the Agency Liaison Program to help facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration across the government.
The new initiative seeks to help industry and agencies advance cloud adoption efforts and sets up a formal feedback mechanism for process improvement. It was created in response to client feedback the PMO received from the ACT-IAC FedRAMP working group and the FedRAMP Ideation Challenge.
The FedRAMP PMO said it has had a kick-off meeting and initial training session with agency liaisons and will hold additional training sessions in July 2020.
