Audit Initiated of the Efficiency of DOT’s Implementation of Cloud-Computing

Project ID: 14F3004F000


The Office of Inspector General is initiating an audit of the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) management practices for the implementation of cloud computing services. Federal agencies are required to default to cloud-based solutions whenever a secure, reliable, and cost-effective cloud option exists. Our audit objectives are to determine whether DOT has (1) an effective process to transition IT services to cloud computing; and (2) identified and mitigated security risks associated with the transition to cloud computing.
