The General Services Administration‘s 18F unit wants to expand its consulting and acquisition services in efforts to forge partnerships with federal agencies to support grants for state and local digital services programs.

Under the expanded practice, 18F plans to offer agile and modular design to federal agencies that provide grants to technology programs in the local and state levels, GSA said Tuesday.

Robin Carnahan, former Missouri state secretary, will lead the new state and local government practice at 18F.

“Federal agencies already provide millions of dollars each year to fund state and local government technology projects,” said Denise Turner Roth, GSA administrator.

“Now even more Americans will benefit from the world-class expertise at 18F, while partnering with federal agencies that provide grants to state and local programs allows GSA to help stretch those dollars even further.”

The new practice builds on 18F’s pilot project to help upgrade California’s child welfare system in 2015 in coordination with the Department of Health and Human Services and the California Department of Social Services.
