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