Learn How to Buy Cloud from GovLoop & ViON

What are the common procurement misconceptions?

"Government IT managers must accept that cloud computing services are services, not the purchases of technology. This usually represents a fundamental change in how technology is acquired and managed. Since the transaction doesn't involve any physical entity, procedures and processes associated with the inspection, acceptance, inventory and management of IT may not apply. New parallel policies that apply to virtual the delivery of virtual services must, instead, be developed and put in place."
