2020 Fed 100

Federal 100: Ashley Mahan


Name: Ashley Mahan
Title: Director, Secure Cloud Portfolio and FedRAMP, Technology Transformation Services
Organization: General Services Administration

Increasing agencies' cloud cover. Mahan has made the government's future much cloudier — in a good way. Under her leadership, GSA has significantly expanded the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program's community. FedRAMP now works with over 150 government entities and more than 200 industry partners. Thanks to Mahan's efforts in 2019, FedRAMP had the largest number of authorizations in a single year — a 30% increase over the previous year — and achieved a 50% increase in agencies' reuse of FedRAMP authorizations. Her leadership has reduced the level of effort for industry and government partners without sacrificing the security of federal information.
