OMB Establishes FedRAMP Board

The Office of Management and Budget replaced the Joint Authorization Board for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program with the establishment of the FedRAMP Board as part of a push to reform the cloud security program, Federal News Network reported Wednesday.

A spokesperson for OMB said the FedRAMP Board consists of seven individuals or representatives from the General Services Administration, the departments of Defense, Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the Department of the Air Force and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

According to the report, OMB has selected and named chief information officers, chief information security officers and other technology experts to the newly created board.

GSA and OMB will each name a non-voting member to serve as chairperson and vice chairperson of the board.

The spokesperson noted that the board will assess and approve FedRAMP requirements and policies, manage the program’s health and performance and broaden the FedRAMP ecosystem’s authorization capacity without participating in the approval of individual authorization packages.
