For the first several years of introduction (and encouragement) of cloud into the federal government, the biggest roadblock was the perception that giving up itemized control of systems meant weakened security and greater vulnerability.

Cloud has become an accepted, and even necessary, part of government IT strategy. Policies like FedRAMP, and now the recently released FedRAMP High protocol, are helping agencies standardize on security and compliance, and estimates suggest that cloud could save the U.S. government nearly $20 billion. Even more, plans for a Cloud Services Portfolio could further support agencies in their move to cloud.

Early this summer, SEWP Program Manager COR, Joanne Woytek gave a great overview of the NASA SEWP V vehicle at an 1105 event focused on GWACs. With the fiscal year-end buying season heating up, we thought this would be a good time to highlight the vehicle and how our government customers can use it to make critical IT purchases.

Carahsoft and many of our reseller partners are proud holders of the NASA SEWP contract. We’ve found it to be an easy-to-use vehicle for our government customers to acquire precisely the technology they need when they need it.
