CSRA Joins Google Cloud Partner Program; Larry Prior Comments

Google has added CSRA to its Cloud Partner Program as both companies aim to implement artificial intelligence-based technology platforms in the federal sector.

CSRA said Thursday the Falls Church, Virginia-based company seeks to expand its government IT offerings through the partnership.

The Google Cloud Platform and G Suite are designed to help customers modernize enterprise operations.

“Our longstanding relationship with the federal government provides new ways for Google to enter this marketplace,” said CSRA President and CEO Larry Prior, a 2018 Wash100 recipient.

The partnership comes after the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program‘s Joint Authorization Board issued provisional authority-to-operate certification to GCP.
