Join the AWS Public Sector Partner Program to become eligible for additional opportunities to expand and differentiate your public sector business with AWS. As a global growth program, the AWS Public Sector Partner Program offers support and differentiation for partners around the world that serve Government, Education, and Nonprofit entities. As your practice grows, differentiate your business by validating your solution and achieving one or more of these distinctions within this program:

The AWS Authorized Government Reseller Program enables qualified AWS Channel Reseller partners to resell AWS services to their public sector customers around the world. The program is designed for APN Consulting Partners who have built their AWS practice to include value-added solutions, services, or support, such as professional services and management of customer AWS deployments.

AWS GovCloud (US) is designed to let US government agencies and commercial entities use cloud computing for sensitive workloads while meeting regulatory and compliance needs. Access to AWS GovCloud (US) is only granted to US persons and the region is managed solely by US persons, on US soil. The AWS GovCloud (US) Service Delivery Program identifies and showcases APN Consulting Partners with experience in architecting, operating, and managing workloads in AWS GovCloud (US) and APN Technology Partners with software products that are available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region. Once your organization gains experience in the region, showcase that expertise by completing a technical review to achieve the AWS GovCloud (US) Service Delivery distinction.

The AWS Competency Program is designed to highlight APN Advanced Tier Partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized solution areas. AWS Government Competency partners provide solutions to—and/or have deep experience working with—government customers to deliver mission-critical workloads and applications on AWS. Achieving the Government Competency indicates a strong overall AWS practice, proven success with customers, and a high-level of technical readiness. Note this competency is global and suitable for partners experienced working with government in any country. In the US, it is not specific to AWS GovCloud (US) but may include work within the region.
