Have you checked out the Internet2 Cloud Scorecard Directory lately? It has grown with the addition of many new vendor participants since its launch as a pilot. With 50 entries we are ready to transition from a pilot program to a web-hosted platform and recently released an RFP to select a vendor to help us further develop this community resource. 

The Cloud Scorecard is a self-assessment tool that helps vendors demonstrate their readiness to support higher education requirements for cloud services. It also helps research and education institutions discover and evaluate cloud solutions that meet their security, compliance, and technology standards.

As the Cloud Scorecard moves past the pilot phase, Internet2 has released a Request for Proposal (RFP) to select a platform for hosting the Cloud Scorecard Directory. The RFP seeks proposals from qualified vendors who can provide and/or develop a cloud service discovery platform to support the Cloud Scorecard functionality and enhance the user experience. The RFP also outlines the requirements and evaluation criteria for the platform.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal for the RFP, please visit this page for more information and instructions. The deadline for submitting proposals is April 21, 2023.

We would like to thank all the vendors and institutions who have participated in the Cloud Scorecard so far and contributed to its success. We look forward to expanding the directory with more cloud services that can benefit the research and education community. If you have any questions or feedback about the Cloud Scorecard, please contact us at cloud-scorecard@internet2.edu.
