Advisory Group Approves New Version of the Questionnaire 

We are excited to announce the release of a new version of the Internet2 Cloud Scorecard Questionnaire. The Cloud Scorecard and Profiles Advisory Group recently approved the addition of two new questions to address generative AI and data privacy considerations. The questions were drafted in consultation with the NET+ Business, Procurement, and Legal Advisory Committee (BPLAC).

Version 1.2 of the Cloud Scorecard Questionnaire is designated for all new vendors. It incorporates a new question on Generative AI alongside a new data privacy query, reflecting our commitment to staying abreast of technological advancements and ensuring comprehensive coverage of these critical areas. Vendors that have previously participated in the Cloud Scorecard will also be provided an opportunity to complete the latest version. The new questions are:

  1. Do you use user data for any reason other than to fulfill obligations under the contract or to improve the service?
  2. Is customer data used to train any first-party or third-party Generative AI models?
