Trenko joins host John Gilroy to give his perspective on federal IT concerns.

Trenko mentions this when he talks about the over 175 data centers that are part of his responsibility.

Trenko suggests that a good practice may be to review the terms of the agreement to make sure it is as flexible as some of the changing requirements.
