Cloud Contract Fostering Innovation in Government (Cloud ConFIG)
We're in the process of developing a new cloud vehicle—referred to as Cloud ConFIG (Cloud Contract Fostering Innovation in Government). This process includes thorough market research and a close reliance on our relationships with industry and agency partners. Our goal is to incorporate all of the latest, relevant environmental factors related to cloud to ensure we are developing the best contract possible. The new vehicle will likely provide the following:
- Cloud services such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS)
- Professional services labor hours for cloud related activities
- Cloud-enabling technologies
Defense and Civilian Agencies
Through partnering with the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and collaborating with other stakeholder agencies, GSA is optimizing Cloud ConFIG by baking-in support for DoD security requirements. These inclusions will benefit both defense and civilian customers, further positioning Cloud ConFIG as the government's go-to cloud computing acquisition vehicle.
Join the Conversation
Join our Interact group to discuss topics with other interested federal and commercial stakeholders. The Cloud PMO will answer questions, clarify requirements, and refine the scope to include in the draft solicitation.
In February 2015, we started market research for a new vehicle and received a highly positive overall response toward developing a new vehicle.
Draft solicitation development is currently underway. As part of this effort, we posted a business case component to OMB MAX for a 15-day comment period (now closed). We are continuing to work toward posting the final business case.
