Cloud IT Services

The Cloud First policy mandates that agencies take full advantage of cloud computing benefits to maximize capacity utilization, improve IT flexibility and responsiveness, and minimize cost.

The Cloud Computing Services (CCS) Program Management Office (PMO) helps agencies comply with mandates and guidelines for moving to the cloud. Our cloud IT services provide convenient, on-demand access to a shared pool of computing resources that can be quickly and easily configured, provisioned, and released.

For more information, download the CCS PMO Brochure (PDF, 681KB).
