GSA Centers of Excellence Helps JAIC Establish Joint Common Foundation


The General Services Administration’s Centers of Excellence is helping the Department of Defense’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center form and launch the Joint Common Foundation as part of a partnership announced in September that seeks to accelerate AI adoption.

GSA’s CoE will provide deliverables to JAIC in strategy and acquisition modernization areas and will begin the effort by conducting meetings with stakeholders, JAIC said Thursday.

For the strategy component, the CoE team will help JAIC conduct a technical analysis of the JCF design, review acquisition strategies and offer recommendations to better achieve the JFC strategy.

GSA will also help JAIC come up with an acquisition modernization plan and develop procurement management processes in support of mission initiatives.

“Our role is to help accelerate IT modernization in the government. The JAIC is already leading the way on AI in DoD. So we’re aiming to learn everything we can from each other about the strategy and infrastructure needed for AI development and from the lessons learned by different teams,” said Matthew Rose, GSA site lead for the JAIC CoE engagement.
