The General Services Administration announced Wednesday it’s seeking to roll out a new category especially for cloud services under its massive IT Schedule 70 contracting vehicle. Maynard Crum, acting director of the Office of Strategic Programs in GSA’s Office of Integrated Technology Services, announced the agency’s pursuit of a new special-item number for cloud — or cloud SIN — during a panel discussion at the Federal Cloud Computing Summit in Washington, D.C.
A series of new tools and information guides from the General Services Administration are designed to help vendors and start-ups use IT Schedule 70 more easily and quickly.
Administrator Denise Turner Roth said all facets of GSA will need to support the standup of the Technology Transformation Service.
The General Services Administration highlighted its progress since April around a series of initiatives designed to make schedule contracting more streamlined and efficient.
