EPA eyes digital services marketplace

The Environmental Protection Agency is considering a digital services marketplace to attract high-quality vendors. According to an 18F blog post published Dec. 3, the EPA “plans to create a marketplace of vendors who specialize in modern digital practices such as human-centered design, agile software development and DevOps.”

The EPA is conducting market research on the various digital services vendors offer; those findings will help the agency develop a strategy for a potential multiple award. The EPA also plans to evaluate vendors based on their environmentally sustainable business practices. 

18F’s consulting team said it has been working “hand in hand” with the EPA to help with its digital transformation. According to the blog, the EPA’s marketplace will be based on 18F’s Agile Delivery Services marketplace.
