Free platform helps agencies with agile acquisition

Federal News RadioAccording to Federal News Radio, the MITRE Corp. has developed a free online platform called Acquisition in the Digital Age (AiDA) to provide tools, references and best practices for agencies to start using agile.

Peter Modigliani, the division chief acquisition strategist for MITRE’s Center for Acquisition and Management Sciences, said AiDA aims to address key challenges with information aimed at specific phases of agile acquisition.

From the article:

“For each phase, we filtered down for each activity what you have to do, and included how-to guidance for each activity,” Modigliani said. “We included sample contract language, a wealth of references, including embedded YouTube videos for just-in-time training. We try to ask and answer key questions that you’d expect an acquisition executive to ask. If you can address these key elements, then you probably have good confidence to advance through next review and into the next phase. We really want to drive critical thinking about acquisition planning.”
