EPA gets serious about agile with $200M dev contract

Environmental Protection AgencyThe Environmental Protection Agency is proving its dedication to agile methods by creating a blanket purchase agreement (BPA) whereby vendors can compete for pre-completed agile contracts, according to Federal Times.

The agency has set an industry day for July 27 as an opportunity to answer questions and discuss requirements with potential vendors. The $200 million, multi-vendor contract focuses on mobile and web-based apps, product customization, and new system development.

“Currently, many agency IT software development vehicles are built to support waterfall development processes,” according to the request for proposals. “This requirement is meant to help EPA develop, implement and maintain IT products and services that will provide the most value for EPA and its stakeholders by using methods that support modular, iterative and flexible development practices using agile methodologies.”
