FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

GSA puts its USA.gov Web site in the cloud

NextGov reports that the General Services Administration will be outsourcing the hardware and “the programs that run the federal government’s official Web portal (USA.gov) from government servers to those operated by a private company.”

USA.gov uses Microsoft “Live search” for indexing and searching and the article does not mention any changes in that. Apparently, the shift is mostly about hardware.
