Transparency in the Integrated Award Environment - An IAE Virtual Event

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 - 1:30 PM
Virtual Event - Please Register

Dear Industry Partners,


You are invited to participate in GSA’s next Integrated Award Environment’s industry outreach event on May 13, 2014 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST.  Focused on Transparency in the Integrated Award Environment (IAE), this virtual meeting is intended for technical audiences considering possible implementations that may meet GSA's future needs.


Please register online for this informative and interactive event.


The upcoming event builds on a series of outreach events that includes a webcast that occurred in April and an Industry Day that happened in December.  The April 7 webcast focused on the target technical architecture and the establishment of a Common Services platform to include everything from identity and access management, hosting and APIs as well as data stores and search. We spoke to the concept of “containerization” and how we will use Agile development and continuous integration to allow for rapid, controlled development.  The December 2013 Industry Day centered on IAE's overall high-level architecture and its architectural principles.  In both presentations (available in the IAE Industry Community on Interact), we emphasized a core principle of IAE’s architecture is that it is open.


The May 13 event will explore what we mean by ‘open’ and expand on how this applies to the future IAE environment. We will discuss five transparencies in the context of product, data, service, operations, and processes.  We also will discuss the implications that openness has on continuous integration, the code repository, and what our business processes will need to look like in order to achieve this key architectural principal.  This will lead us to some key questions about the capabilities we are acquiring within the IAE Common Services, IAE Technical Governance and IAE DevOps/IV&V contracts, so we hope you will take part in the discussion.


A recording of the full event, all handouts, and other materials will be posted online in the Interact IAE Industry Community following the event. Please send any questions regarding the webcast to IAEoutreach@gsa.gov


We look forward to your participation, feedback, and input!
