Seven companies have gained priority status to work with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program‘s Joint Authorization Board to obtain a provisional authority-to-operate for different cloud technology and service offerings.

JAB officials and 13 agency chief information officers and representatives evaluated the presentations and selected the final set of companies that will work with JAB.
