Vencore Inc. announced April 26 that the company has been awarded a position on the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) Agile Delivery Services Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) program valued at $25 million to support its digital services innovation arm — 18F.
“We are proud, long-term partners with GSA,” Vencore President and CEO Mac Curtis said. “This win marks the beginning of a new era and serves as a true testament of Vencore’s agile software development approach and ability to immediately respond to customer challenges. 18F is changing the way we think about IT services and will allow the government to respond more swiftly to its government clients’ needs.”
Under the contract, Vencore will have an opportunity to bring its proven, agile software development and user-friendly architecture to agencies government-wide.
18F is an internal team at the GSA created to improve federal IT services and tasked with solving government-wide IT problems in a responsive, collaborative and rapid problem-solving manner. The BPA allows 18F to team with industry companies to successfully manage the increasing demand for its services.
The primary goal of the BPA is to enable government agencies to buy services for agile development projects and transform the way digital services are purchased into a leaner, rapid-response model.
