The GSA’s Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program or better known as FedRAMP has approved the use of Amazon Web Services for cloud computing. The cloud services will help the Army and Navy save time and money. High level military clearance is required for the DoD to use Amazon as a cloud computing source/venue. However, after each business is tested through FedRAMP and evaluated by the Pentagon before it can be approved for federal use.

The FedRAMP certification process is done by a third-party reviewer and can take as long as six months to decide which businesses are approved. So far it seems some of the largest government contractors in the nation are the only ones fitting the bill. Companies like Akamai, AT&T, Autonomic Resources LLC, CGI Federal, Hewlett Packard, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft and Amazon Web Services are the only businesses being approved for these massive cloud service contracts. Businesses that would like to join the federal marketplace in cloud services for the DoD must first be registered in System for Award Management (SAM) by conducting the SAM.gov Online Registration.

Georgia Tech PTAC office “estimates that a high percentage of the 600,000 firms presently registered in SAM.gov have errors in their records. The mistakes range from misspelled words to empty data fields, to incomplete entries, to selection of incorrect procurement codes, and other flaws. As a result, these vendors miss-out on government contract opportunities either because they are screened out for not exhibiting attention to detail or because of incomplete information they cannot be identified by government buyers.” This shows that there is a real need for US Federal Contractor Registration’s services.
