The agency detailed in a notice posted Wednesday on the Federal Register that it is looking for software developers, subject matter experts, data scientists, engineers and other professionals from related fields to participate in the competition.
Challenges will focus on the utilization of publicly available data to create smart technology solutions such as applications, data mashup or application programming interfaces, GSA said.
According to the notice, the goal of the competition is to enhance transparency in government data and generate insights for agency decision-making on business problems.
