Public
In-House
Cloud Contracting represents about 8.5% of all IT spending by the government. The type of buying is changing and the government continues to look to industry to provide the expertise and resources. In 2010, the government announced a “Cloud First” policy requiring agencies to perform certain evaluations, services and cloud solutions.   

In the morning session, we will discuss the opportunities and challenges of cloud contracting; how and what vehicles they are using in the acquisition process.  

During the afternoon session, we will explore privacy, ethics and reporting. Data privacy is one of the most visible challenges faced by the government and the industry. Protecting data and ensuring privacy of personal information is imperative for everyone. There are a number of new and proposed rules and regulations to enhance current privacy laws. 

With the daunting task of protecting data comes ethical responsibilities and reporting.  We will discuss what organizations can do to ensure compliance; when and what they need to report; as well as who they need to provide reporting to.
