Octo, TDMK capture $6.8M Air Force contracts for agile development work

Octo Consulting and TDMK Digital LLC have each won a $6.8 million contract to aid the Air Force in software modernization efforts.

The contract supports the Air Force’s Targeting and Geospatial-Intelligence Program Management Office, which is pursuing a modernization initiative by creating a cloud platform for developing applications

The office wants to build cloud-native applications but also will be reworking legacy applications for hosting in a cloud, according to solicitation documents.

The office also wants to make sure that the contractors will follow Agile development principles. In its request for information, the Air Force said: “Many contractors have worked with the government on so-called agile software development projects, but have practiced water-scrum fall.”

The Air Force also wants to avoid the “pitfalls of up-front waterfall requirements processes and backend waterfall test and delivery processes.”

The service wants to establish a “lean user-centered approach that will ultimately redefine how targeting and GEOINT capability is delivered to the Air Force warfighter,” solicitation documents said.

Both contracts are for 30 months: an initial six-month base and two one-year options.
