Perspecta approved for continued accreditation as FedRAMP Third Party Assessment Organization
CHANTILLY, Va., May 7, 2020—Perspecta Inc. (NYSE: PRSP), a leading U.S. government services provider, announced today that it renewed its accreditation to evaluate cloud-based solutions for federal government agencies as a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO). Perspecta is one of fewer than 40 accredited assessors in the United States with this capability.
In order to maintain its 3PAO status, Perspecta underwent a rigorous assessment conducted by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) to verify the company's technical competence according to FedRAMP requirements and compliance with international standards. Successful completion of the requirements was acknowledged via A2LA certificate number 3825.01. A2LA is an independent accreditation body that performs competency and independence assessments of 3PAOs as part of the FedRAMP program.
“With the federal government growing more focused on utilizing and migrating to FedRAMP certified services, this accreditation validates our commitment to delivering the quality solutions our customers can rely on,” said Mac Curtis, president and chief executive officer, Perspecta Inc. “As a long-standing 3PAO, we look forward to leveraging our expertise in cloud migration and cybersecurity to partner and consult with our government customers along every step of their cloud modernization journeys.”
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud-based services. Under the Security Assessment Framework, 3PAOs are required to be accredited by A2LA in order to be recognized by the FedRAMP Project Management Office (PMO).
Perspecta received the original accreditation to become a FedRAMP 3PAO in June 2013.
