In part two of our examination of cloud computing in the federal government, Dave McClure with the General Services Administration, and Edwin Elmore and Mark Lambdin with Cisco Systems in Washington, provide a report card on cloud computing. How are industry and government meeting the challenges of security, acquisitions and 'big data' when it comes to the cloud? And what do government and industry expect from each other when it comes to the business of cloud computing?
David McClure, associate administrator in the Office of Citizen Services & Innovative Technologies at the General Services Administration, moderated a panel at the 2011 Executive Leadership Conference.
GSA, NIST to name the first batch of outside organizations who will test and validate commercial cloud products against baseline security standards in the FedRAMP cloud security program in May. The Joint Authorization Board also will release guidance to industry on how to implement the security requirements in the coming months. FedRAMP still is months from approving its first set of vendors.

In its first year, the website Challenge.gov let agencies add public contests as a low-cost way to find innovative solutions to their problems. Officials at the General Services Administration, which runs the site, say challenges offer a lower-cost alternative to procurement or grants and speak to a different audience. GSA would like to see challenges standardized across the government in the coming year — but worry that the site may lose funding.
The agreement between the White House and Congressional leaders to fund the government through the remainder of 2011 would strip the E-Government fund of more than three quarters of its dollars. The fund, managed by the General Services Administration, pays for several of the Obama Administration's government transparency websites.
