We are delighted to announce that AWS GovCloud (US) has received an Agency Authority to Operate (ATO) from the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in compliance with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMPSM). FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.

Leveraging the HHS authorization, U.S. government agencies can evaluate AWS GovCloud (US) for their applications and workloads, complete their own authorizations to use AWS, and deploy systems into the AWS environment.

Agencies can immediately request access to the "Amazon Web Services - AWS GovCloud (US) Region" FedRAMP package by submitting a FedRAMP Package Access Request Form using package ID "AGENCYAMAZONGC".

Join us for our weekly AWS GovCloud (US) Region Office Hours on May 21st, 1:00 – 3:00 PM EST and the Intro to AWS GovCloud (US) Region webinar on June 12th, 1:30 – 2:30 PM EST to learn more about AWS FedRAMP Compliance.
