Technology Transformation Initiative Powered by GSA and MeriTalk

With new leadership and initiatives, GSA’s focused on accelerating government technology innovation and cloud transformation.  But to get there we need open, interactive public-private communication and collaboration.  GSA’s CIO, David Shive is the new Commissioner for GSA’s Technology Transformation Service (TTS) — which means he’s responsible for FedRAMP and 18F.

MeriTalk and GSA will hold a GSA Forum on FedRAMP and TTS/18F on September 13th at the Newseum in Washington D.C.  where David and his GSA colleagues will talk about the future for FedRAMP and TTS.  Get the discussion started now by joining in on the online conversation — we’ll consider your input to help shape the agenda for September 13th.  We’re all ears.
