The Octo Metric Joint Venture (JV), including Octo and Metric5, has been awarded the four-year, $25 million Mission Support Portfolio on the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) FAST contract, Octo announced on Tuesday.
“This award reflects Octo’s commitment to support federal customers by providing leading edge Agile DevSecOps and cloud solutions,” said Thomas Lee, SVP at Octo. “We are excited about developing the relationship with TSA and working once again with Metric5 as a trusted Octo Metric JV partner.”
Under the contract, Octo will provide program and project management, subject matter and senior technology expertise, application development and application production. FAST will deliver a strategy that will support the integration, customization and development of various mission support systems and applications.
TSA’s strategy will leverage industry and government best practices to reduce time to market, improve code quality and enhance customer service. FAST will establish a new procurement model that supports Agile development and production. This vehicle has enabled TSA to procure scalable Agile teams faster than conventional government contracting approaches.
FAST will help TSA’s Applications Development Division adapt modern architecture standards and delivery practices such as microservices, continuous integration and delivery, automated testing, and leveraging the cloud.
“We are confident that with the right tools, technology, and people we collectively have access to, we’re positioned to help TSA meet the demands of its important mission,” Lee added. Octo Metric was the only small business awardee and is one of only six vendors to be awarded.
