DTA's Cloud Services Panel hits $100m milestone

The Digital Transformation Agency's Cloud Services Panel has passed the milestone of awarding contracts worth over $100 million since it was established in January 2015.

The panel has now been used to award contracts across more than 200 opportunities, the agency announced last month.

So far 91 agencies have released quote requests using the panel, and the platform has more than 1300 registered users across all tiers of government.

On the seller side, more than 170 vendors are together offering more than 500 products and services that have been verified to comply with the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Cloud Computing Standards.

While the panel has only been opened to new sellers twice since launch, new services are being added every month due to the ability of sellers to propose new services and categories without waiting for a panel refresh.

The DTA also announced it intends to open the panel more regularly starting this year. New online submission options and agile evaluation methods will be introduced to make joining the panel easier for both buyers and sellers.
