Homeland Security Wants Its Own Contract Vehicle for Agile Services
The Homeland Security Department wants to jump on the agile bandwagon for its mobile and Web applications.
DHS eventually wants to award one agencywide contract to a business that can provide digital design and development, according to the department. For now, it’s gathering information on the best way to award contracts for “agile services,” which use a project management process that breaks large technology projects into smaller sprints.
The request for information about agile services comes a few months after the General Services Administration awarded 17 vendors a spot on its own agile blanket purchase agreement — a pre-approved list of businesses qualified to provide digital development services to other agencies.
