Acquisitions expert Rich Beutel, who helped write and managed passage of the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) while serving as a senior staffer on the House Government Oversight and Reform committee, has turned his attention to industry.

His new consultancy, Cyrrus Analytics, is aimed at providing medium-sized cloud service providers a path through the maze of compliance directives required to do business with the federal government.

Beutel launched Cyrrus in the last week of January, and so far he's landed Adobe and MeriTalk as clients.

"I would be problem-solving issues that are hindering clients’ ability to do business with the federal government," Beutel told FCW in an email.

Some areas of practice include FedRAMP certification, changing National Institute for Standards and Technology security guidance, navigating agency procurement models, and general government contracting issues, he said.
