The General Services Administration‘s 18F digital services organization has introduced an open source tool designed to display contract forecasting opportunities as part of GSA’s effort to help companies do business with the government.
18F sought to apply feedback it received from small businesses on topics such as types of information companies need to pursue federal contracts in order to design and develop the tool, GSA said Monday.
Team members at 18F designed the tool to comply with the Draft U.S. Web Design Standards for optimal mobile device display and with features to help users search and filter keywords.
18F also incorporated a Django application into the tool to help the Office of Small Business Utilization update forecasts throughout the year.
The tool complements GSA’s projects under its Making it Easier initiative, which Administrator Denise Turner Roth introduced in April.
