Cloud computing platforms are a high priority for state and local government Chief Information Officers. Recently, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) awarded contracts to provide services under a new Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Blanket Purchase Agreement. The goal of the webinar is to have GSA discuss how state and local governments can purchase services through this cooperative purchasing agreement. GSA will also discuss how the contracts were awarded, the services offered, common requirements, data control, security & privacy among other contract details.
Please submit advance questions on the registration page. Webinar information will be sent to registrants prior to the call. This webinar is restricted to government only.

To the extent such credential is honored by commercial entities, it will also improve efficiency and security of commercial transactions, including on-line transactions.
