Tough to know if cloud providers have the correct federal requirements in place. If fedramp would get with the program, and certify more than just a few measly IaaS providers (which does not offer much - most customers are after either PaaS or SaaS), then perhaps it would make implementing in the cloud, AND the oversight easier!

Its really too bad that the current administration is pushing organizations like NASA to the cloud. NASA has no reason to be in the cloud, nor does a large majority of the rest of the Federal Government. We have children in Washington that have no idea what they are doing.
