3PAO Services

We have the experience, knowledge, and technical expertise to fully assess your systems and make sure you’re ready for a FedRAMP review.

Accreditation

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government program that provides a standardized approach to assessing, authorizing, and monitoring commercial cloud services for use by federal entities.¬† As part of the FedRAMP certification process, a Cloud Service Provider’s products and systems must be evaluated by an independent assessor called a Third-Party Assessment Organization (3PAO).

First Info Tech is proud to be recognized as an accredited 3PAO; we were certified by the America Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), an internationally-recognized,  nonprofit accreditation body tasked by the FedRAMP Project Management Office (PMO) to assess the technical  competence of organizations hoping to achieve 3PAO status.

A2LA performed a rigorous assessment to test our technical competence, as well as our compliance with international standards of impartiality and inspection practices. As part of the 3PAO certification process, A2LA reviewed First Info Tech’s demonstrated ability to accurately perform and meticulously document every step of a typical assessment of a cloud system, and confirmed that First Info Tech adheres to ISO/IEC 17020:2012 Requirements for the Operation of Various Types of Bodies Performing Inspection, along with additional controls required by FedRAMP.
