Buying Cloud Services on GSA Schedules to Get Easier
July 9, 2014
Federal agencies have spent more than $800 million on cloud services in the last two years, according to a senior GSA official.
Maynard Crum, acting director of the Office of Strategic Programs within GSA’s Federal Acquistion Service, disclosed the figure July 9 at the Federal Cloud Computing Summit conference in Washington.
Crum added that tracking cloud spending by federal agencies is a challenge because services and purchases are not typically labeled as cloud procurements.
But that will soon change, he said.
