FedRAMP is a government-wide program with input from numerous
departments, agencies, and government groups. The program’s primary
decision-making body is the Joint Authorization Board (JAB), comprised
of the CIOs from Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Homeland
Security (DHS), and General Services Administration (GSA). In addition
to the JAB, other organizations such as the Office of Management and
Budget (OMB), the Federal CIO Council, National Institute of Standards &
Technology (NIST), and the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO) also
play key roles in effectively running FedRAMP.
Using a “do once, use many times” framework, the program ensures
information systems/services used government-wide have adequate
information security; eliminates duplication of effort and reduces risk
management costs; and enables rapid and cost-effective procurement of
information systems/services for federal agencies.
