Members of the OASIS Public Cloud (PACR) TC are developing a set of common required functional elements and measurable criteria or qualities that should be present in cloud computing services or installations employed by public administration entities, whether purchased, hired, or self-created and self-installed.

Deliverables of the PACR TC include published specifications for a common set of attributes and operational requirements that are relevant to public administrations, at each of the major service levels of cloud systems, and documentation of the relationships to existing open standards and published governmental specifications that supply methods of measurement and definition.
