TSA Wants Industry Input on Its Proposed Agile Contract Vehicle

Nov 5, 2018

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is asking industry to weigh in on its strategy for building a bullpen of tech companies the agency could call on to stand up new software applications. The agency on Monday issued a special notice detailing its Fast Agile Scalable Teams procurement program, a proposed contract vehicle TSA plans to use to acquire custom software and modernize legacy systems. Vendors selected under the blanket purchase agreement would be required to apply agile methodology—breaking large projects into smaller chunks, developed in sprints—to build and maintain a suite of enterprisewide software applications.
