Federal CIOs are being tasked to move to a National cloud while streamlining operations and working with increasingly shrinking IT budgets. They are mandated to maintain U.S. compliance and security standards while advancing their entity’s mission and better serving its citizens. As part of the mandate for data sovereignty, some CIOs are finding “US Persons” in their Microsoft Premier Support for Government contracts. These are not US citizens servicing US Federal, State and local agencies, but rather H-1B foreign nationals temporarily living on US soil. As a result, some agencies may find themselves out of compliance and operating in a weakened security state.
