McLean, Virginia – Xcelerate Solutions is proud to announce that it was recently awarded the first task order on the $300M Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Services for Enabling Agile Delivery (SEAD) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). Through this task order, Xcelerate will provide hands-on coaching services to support the design, implementation, and use of Agile and other modern development techniques and best practices to modernize business practices and processes within the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Secure Flight program. Xcelerate will assist the program in transitioning from a hybrid waterfall/pseudo-Agile development methodology, to a more structured Agile development and release schedule.
Xcelerate’s SEAD team includes Agile coaches and experts with strong technical backgrounds to support DHS Component project teams in the successful implementation of next-generation web-based applications and systems infrastructure, focusing on automation, availability, performance, and efficiency at scale. Further, Xcelerate’s seasoned Agile coaches will instill the value of finding defects as they are created, rather than later in the process when resolution can be exponentially more expensive.
Xcelerate Team’s Agile solutions are based on strong partnerships with industry-leading Agile associations including SAFe® Gold Partner (highest level), Scrum Alliance Registered Education Provider (REP), and recognition as an ICAgile Member Training Organization (MTO). Xcelerate and its partners bring more than 400 Agile experts with real-world implementation experience and certifications from ICAgile, Scrum Alliance, Scaled Agile, Project Management Institute (PMI), and others. We deliver experts with real-world experience applying Scrum and Lean/Kanban processes, extreme programming (XP), DevOps and DevSecOps, and SAFe.
