Agile Delivery Services BPA Community

The primary purpose of our group is to facilitate direct communication with GSA’s customers and industry partners, who are interested in the Agile Services Delivery Blanket Purchase Agreement (ASD-BPA).  The site will be used primarily to communicate updates on the BPA as well as to receive feedback from key stakeholders on this effort.

About 18F:

18F is a newly formed organization within GSA.  Our mission is to transform the way the government builds and buys IT, with an emphasis on public-facing digital services.  We largely operate under the authority of the Economy Act.  Federal agencies approach us with a need or an opportunity, and we enter into an interagency agreement to provide one or more of the following lines of service:

  • Delivery - Design, build, and operate effective, user-centric digital services focused on the interaction between government and the people and businesses it serves.
  • Consulting - Provide hands-on consulting services to Federal program managers and other leaders who need assistance in designing and managing software acquisitions that use modern development techniques (e.g., agile, lean, open source).
  • Presidential Innovation Fellowship Program - Pair talented, diverse technologists, and innovators with top civil-servants and change-makers working at the highest levels of the Federal Government to tackle some our nation’s biggest challenges.

Our guiding principles are to:

  1. Put the needs of users first
  2. Release early, iteratively, and often
  3. Don’t slow down delivery
  4. Only do it if it adds value
  5. Work in the open

Since our inception in March 2014, 18F has quickly grown to over 100 designers, developers, and product specialists. The demand for 18F’s services has far exceeded our capacity to supply.  We need help from the private sector to meet this demand. In addition, based on the work that 18F Consulting has been doing, we’ve seen a real need for a government-wide contract vehicle through which agencies can access to a pool of vendors with agile delivery capabilities such as user-centered design, agile software development, and DevOps.  Establishing the Agile Services Delivery BPA will be a critical step in meeting this need.
