From vision to procurement: Principles for adopting cloud in the public sector

The ACCA’s Public Sector Special Interest Group launched a report in 2019 titled “From

Vision to Procurement: Principles for Adopting Cloud in the Public Sector” to help demystify

cloud solutions and provide necessary guidance to procurement policymakers and

government agencies that are considering the adoption of cloud services.

The presentation would cover the set of seven principles that the ACCA has developed in

this report to help policymakers and procuring agencies work through the necessary

considerations and have fruitful discussions with cloud service providers when developing

procurement policies and evaluating the suitability of cloud solutions for public sector

workloads. Each principle is accompanied by concrete recommendations for policymakers

and procuring agencies to follow.
