We've been slowly migrating the old services to the new systems.

Great, thanks. I figured you were already on top of looking at what the
PSF can do, but it seemed worth bringing up.
Would it make sense to develop an infrastructure policy with a set of
requirements for infrastructure? Then the PSF could pay someone (or
appoint someone) to review everything periodically to make sure there
are working audited backups, security patches, security scans, and
whatever else is required by the policy. I don't know if that's too
bureaucratic but I'd support it as a way to use PSF funds.
