The General Services Administration has worked with the Office of Federal Procurement Policy to launch the FAR Data Collection Payroll Pilot application. NuAxis Innovations supported the development of the application, which was created using an agile and human-centered approach to software development.
The pilot was launched in accordance with Section 5 of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act, which aims to make federal spending information easily accessible to the public. Section 5 of the DATA Act requires the federal government to establish a pilot program that will help determine final recommendations for standardized reporting, the elimination of unnecessary duplication in reporting and the reduction of costs.
“We are thrilled to have launched another agile project for the federal government,” said Raza Latif, president of NuAxis. “This project is a step toward modernizing federal IT programs and increasing efficiency of reporting within the government.”
The pilot aims to increase efficiency for a required, time-consuming certified payroll process for government contractors. The new software is hosted online on GSA’s Business Services Platform.
“This application will have a positive impact on the outdated, cumbersome certified payroll reporting processes,” Latif said. “We are excited to show how agile development can successfully work within the federal IT environment.”
