In early 2020, a steering committee of government and industry leaders came together to charter StateRAMP.
We appreciate the leaders who serve on our board and committees for the guidance they provide. On behalf of the StateRAMP team, we are so appreciative of the work you do to improve the cyber posture of governments and the citizens they serve.

2023 Committee Members
The Appeals Committee is comprised of at least five members at all times. Committee members are appointed by the board, who strive to include representation from all stakeholders, including at least one member of the Board of Directors. The Appeals Committee serves as the adjudication board for issues related to the PMO such as a conflict-of-interest claim, disagreements over status determination, or requests for exceptions. They conduct regular meetings and may call special ad hoc meetings as needed. In some cases, the Executive Committee, which includes Board Officers and executive staff, may appoint a subject matter expert to the committee to aid in a claim assessment as needed.
