The General Services Administration has formed a team of developers tasked with developing online services for government agencies, FCW reported Wednesday.

Adam Mazmanian writes Dave McClure, associate administrator of GSA’s Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies, will lead the 15-person team to build project prototypes and resources under the 18F program.

Dan Tangherlini, GSA administrator, said the service delivery program is intended to establish the government’s digital incubator within GSA, according to the report.

The program is also part of the government’s efforts to help agencies adopt the agile development approach, the report says.

Mazmanian writes the team is comprised of GSA’s digital delivery employees and presidential innovation fellows who will work to develop government websites and provide contracting and acquisition advisory services, among others.

GSA plans to expand the team to 65 members under its fiscal 2014 budget proposal, FCW reports.
