Industry Day - Cloud Brokerage RFI

GSA has issued a Request for Information (RFI), Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) Cloud Brokerage RFI, to learn how government can further leverage the key characteristics and advantages of cloud computing to save money and increase IT efficiencies. View the RFI QTA00AH12BRI0002 on FedBizOpps, released July 17, 2012. Responses are due August 17, 2012.

GSA is seeking information about alternative models and/or solutions for future cloud acquisition vehicles and processes that further the goals of reducing acquisition time, cost, and risk for customer agencies. One emerging concept in cloud computing is that of a 'cloud broker' or an entity that manages the use, performance and delivery of cloud services, and negotiates relationships between Cloud Providers and Cloud Consumers. On a larger scale, GSA is seeking innovative industry approaches to acquiring, ordering, securing, provisioning and managing advanced IT services.
