SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is proposing a new Federal Cloud Computing Strategy (“Cloud Smart”) to increase cloud adoption across the Federal portfolio. As part of the President's Management Agenda, the U.S. Government has committed to modernize legacy technology and leverage leading practices from industry to improve citizen services, reduce operational costs, and enhance the security of the Federal enterprise. The 2018 Federal Cloud Computing Strategy, “Cloud Smart,” an update of the original Cloud approach, addresses gaps in previous guidance, embraces new capabilities, and provides an end-to-end strategy to accelerate transformation. This new, transformative strategy focuses on three key inter-related areas—security, procurement, and workforce—necessary to drive cloud adoption through building knowledge in government and removing burdensome policy barriers. This strategy will be available for review and public comment at https://cloud.cio.gov/​.
