SAFe in Government: Major Contract Awarded to SAI Gold Partner for SAFe Implementation

Case Studies Customer Stories Partners

safe_in_governmentThe Administrative Office of the U.S. Federal Courts awarded Scaled Agile Gold Partner SRA International a five-year contract valued at $115 million. SRA will provide full software development life cycle expertise for a variety of applications supporting probation and pre-trial services, as well as Case Management/Electronic Case Files which is the system that manages the electronic court filings.

It is gratifying to see the progress that Agile and SAFe are making in the government space (see last post). After all, these are our tax dollars being spent. And as Lean thinking drives elimination of waste, the government is a target-rich environment, as they say on the beltway.

You can read the full press release here, but for anyone monitoring the progress of SAFe in the government, this is the interesting part:

“As part of the program, CSRA will continue to support the CMSO as it transitions all application development to Agile methodologies leading to the implementation of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) and Development/Operations (DevOps) methodologies.”

Note: SRA is a subdivision of CSRA.

Happy Holidays everyone!
—Dean and the SAI team

    I had the opportunity to introduce and promote SAFe within the AO, and I can tell you it really resonated with many members of the leadership team there. It’s exciting to see an even more accelerated adoption of SAFe for this agency as part of the awarding of this new contract! Thanks to Dean and the team at SAI for all of their support as we have worked hard to introduce SAFe to our Federal customers!
