15 GSA’s IT Schedule 70 – A platform for offering Cloud Computing service offerings GSA’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud offering is an example of how GSA leverages IT Schedule 70 as a platform for creating integrated solutions.The IaaS blanket purchase agreement (BPA) packages IT Schedule 70 products and services into distinct lots featuring cloud storage, virtual machines, and web hosting.Through this offering, agencies can meet the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) cloud and data center consolidation mandates, reduce their environmental footprint, save taxpayer money, and serve the American people better.IT Schedule 70 brings the latest technology to agencies and allows GSA to be more innovative and responsive to the needs of the government agencies we serve.

17 IaaS Awardees, Teaming Partners and ATO (as of May 1, 2012) Indicates that GSA has granted an Authority-To-Operate
18 IaaS BPA Security/ATO Overview An Authority To Operate (ATO) is required before an order is placed against GSA Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)GSA IaaS BPA vendors have been granted an ATO that can be leveraged by other agencies for IT systems and data at the FISMA Moderate Impact Level or lower.GSA IaaS BPA granted ATO’s can be leveraged by any federal agency for the FIPS-199 Moderate Impact Level or lower. This makes acquisitions easier, faster and less costly for agencies to take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing.As of May 1, 2012, 4 of the 12 IaaS BPA vendors (CGI Federal, Verizon Business, Apptis and Autonomic Resources) hold an active GSA IaaS BPA granted ATO.
