On September 8, the General Services Administration (GSA) is hosting its very first Technology Industry Day. Participating vendors will get an opportunity to learn about how GSA is transforming technology in the federal government, see demos of products and solutions developed by technologists and, last but not least, provide feedback on how GSA can work better with industry.
The event will be held at GSA headquarters located at 1800 F St., NW, Washington, DC 20405, and the event also will be accessible remotely.
On-site registration will close on September 5, 2016, and remote registration will close on the day of the event.
Below are a few projects to be featured and registration details:
- The Agile Blanket Purchase Agreement allows innovation in procurement, lessens the burden on industry and solves problems in a user-centered approach. A great example is the work with the FedRAMP program management office at GSA, the first client to use the Agile BPA. We helped the FedRAMP office hire an agile vendor to implement human-centered design and build a public-facing dashboard about cloud authorizations.
- Micropurchasing is a process is where the federal government makes small procurements to directly buy products and services, as long as the price does not exceed $3,500. Currently, we are using that process to buy small pieces of open source software and design through the Micro-purchase Marketplace. This process has allowed clients to add valuable features to their products through quick, inexpensive purchases.
- Cloud.gov is a shared platform built for government that allows agencies to securely deploy systems to the cloud. It takes care of baseline security and scalability concerns and allows federal teams to focus on delivering quality products.
