The working group is re-convening for the implementation phase of the cloud scorecard project.

About the Cloud Scorecard :Based on community feedback, Internet2 is developing a cloud services scorecard to help our members assess cloud services for compliance with higher education standards and needs. Using standards and best practices developed within Working Group:

The NET+ Cloud Scorecard Launch Working Group represents the research and education community over the past 25 years, the scorecard will be a self-assessment completed by a vendor.  Institutions can use the scorecard standards in RFPs and also to benchmark or evaluate services against key criteria. This cloud scorecard will complement existing capabilities and efforts within the Internet2 NET+ program. The goal is not to create new methods or standards for evaluating cloud services, but to provide a way of collecting vendor responses to their degree of adherence to existing standards and practices that the community deems importantcloud community in developing, implementing, and maintaining the Cloud Scorecard and associated projects.
