Federal Agencies

Partnering with FedRAMP®

FedRAMP helps federal agencies use cloud services to securely modernize their technology and support their mission.

To do this, agencies use FedRAMP’s standardized baselines to evaluate the security of cloud services. For any cloud services that they wish to use, agencies work with Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) to review the security posture and authorize the Cloud Service Offering (CSO). Agencies can review and reuse CSO security packages once they are designated as “Authorized” within the FedRAMP Marketplace by issuing their own authorization to use the product. FedRAMP’s “do once, use many” principle enables agencies to expand the marketplace of secure cloud services available to the federal government.

How FedRAMP Can Help

It is one of FedRAMP’s priorities to support agencies and their journey to using the latest cloud technologies. The FedRAMP PMO is here to assist and guide agencies through the FedRAMP Authorization process. To get started, please contact us at
