The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) and the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) released “Capitals in the Clouds: California’s Cloud Infrastructure Case Study,” on Thursday.

“California’s Cloud Infrastructure has received widespread attention in the state community because of its scope, stature, potential value and procurement approach,” the associations said.

The paper includes information and advice from Neeraj Chauhan, California’s cloud infrastructure project director, Office of Technology Services, California Department of Technology; Carlos Ramos, State CIO; and Jim Butler, California’s chief procurement officer.

“We are delighted to be working with NASPO on this case study series and believe the lessons learned and advice from the trenches will be invaluable to state CIOs as they procure services for their customers,” said Doug Robinson, NASCIO executive director.
