NVTC Board Member Jim Sheaffer Named Vice Chair of TechAmerica Foundation Cloud Commission

On Tuesday, March 1, TechAmerica Foundation announced a new commission that will formulate public policies for advancing the Obama administration's Cloud-First initiative for government technology. NVTC Vice Chair Jim Sheaffer of CSC, who will serve as vice chairman of the commission, will lead a task force focused on government adoption of cloud solutions.

The commission will make recommendations on how government should deploy cloud technologies and address policies that might hinder U.S. leadership of the cloud in the commercial space.

In June, recommendations concerning the federal sector will be presented to U.S. Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra, and commercial-area recommendations will be shared with Commerce Secretary Gary Locke and Undersecretary Pat Gallagher.
