St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) March 05, 2014
The General Services Administration (GSA) is collaborating with MeriTalk to create a new way to speed up the process for cloud computing services. MeriTalk and the GSA are calling the new alterations to the system OnRAMP. FedRAMP OnRAMP is an online portal that will speed up the governments cloud computing efforts. FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) is the program GSA has designed to certify commercial cloud service contractors. To date only eight companies have made the cut through FedRAMP. The FedRAMP certification process is done by a third-party reviewer and can take as long as six months to decide which businesses are approved. So far it seems some of the largest government contractors in the nation are the only ones fitting the bill.
Businesses that are interested in joining the cloud computing market must first become a registered government contractor. A business must receive a Dun & Bradstreet number and become registered in SAM.gov or System for Award Management (SAM) in the federal governments required database of all registered contractors. Over 60,000 businesses have turned to the services of US Federal Contractor Registration to become properly registered in SAM and to start marketing to procurement officers across the nation.
Georgia Tech PTAC office estimates that a high percentage of the 600,000 firms presently registered in SAM.gov have errors in their records. The mistakes range from misspelled words to empty data fields, to incomplete entries, to selection of incorrect procurement codes, and other flaws. As a result, these vendors miss-out on government contract opportunities either because they are screened out for not exhibiting attention to detail or because of incomplete information they cannot be identified by government buyers. This shows that there is a real need for US Federal Contractor Registrations services. In an effort to help businesses become registered and help the small business initiative US Federal Contractor Registration is encouraging businesses to use other their full service or their self service options.
