GSA Seeks Info on Potential Cloud.gov Support Sources

The General Services Administration’s Federal Acquisition Service has launched a market survey to identify potential sources of professional services for a web-based cloud computing platform designed for government use.

GSA said Thursday in a FedBizOpps notice FAS’ technology transformation services division seeks large or small companies that can help the agency manage and maintain cloud.gov site.

The portal runs on Amazon Web ServicesGovCloud infrastructure and is designed to help federal users create, run and certify legacy and cloud-based agency systems.

GSA noted the platform as a service employs an open source architecture derived from the Cloud Foundry project.

The agency plans to host a virtual industry day on Nov. 16 to discuss the sought support services with interested vendors.

Companies can submit responses to the RFI notice until Nov. 20.
