NRC moves backend office systems to cloud

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is becoming only the second federal agency to move its big backend office systems to the cloud. NRC has awarded a 23 million dollar contract to transition its Financial Accounting and Integrated Management Information System to a privately-hosted infrastructure. The agency had been using hosting services provided by the Interior Department. The NRC decision follows a similar move by the Labor department last year, when moved its financial systems to a private cloud.
