“The objective of this RFI is to ensure Treasury’s vision for the Treasury Cloud (TCloud) infrastructure and support services is feasible for a hybrid-cloud ecosystem and is supportable by the commercial marketplace. Specifically, the RFI seeks to:
- Validate the Treasury strategy for establishing managed and unmanaged cloud services in a hybrid, multi-CSP environment.
- Assess and identify the latest technology products, services, and best practices across the industry to migrate from our ‘Current State’ to a planned ‘Future State’ – including tool, architectural, application, and data considerations.
- Assess the current marketplace and existing industry capabilities to understand how CSPs, Managed Service Providers (MSP), and Value-Added Resellers (VAR) are supporting similar Government programs with comparable size and complexity.
- Identify capable and interested contractors with proven experience managing Government programs of similar size and complexity.”
“Shifts in the infrastructure ecosystem are impacting the Department’s ability to efficiently and effectively meet its mission objectives. Much of Treasury’s IT infrastructure is housed in on-premises data centers that limit the ability to quickly adjust IT resources to support changing or new mission requirements.
Treasury recognizes the current on-premises infrastructure cannot adapt quickly enough to Bureau demand. The Department has cloud services in production and is actively exploring and testing new solutions. Across the Department demand for cloud services varies and is influenced by the level of individual Bureau cloud expertise. Some Bureaus with IT resources and expertise are deploying cloud infrastructure while others, with limited IT resources, are looking to OCIO for guidance and support. The Enterprise now needs to determine the best path to address cloud demand, while optimizing costs across all of Treasury.”
