McLean, Virginia – Xcelerate Solutions is proud to announce that it is one of nine awardees of the $300M Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Services for Enabling Agile Delivery (SEAD) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). Through the SEAD BPA, Xcelerate will provide hands-on coaching services to support the design, implementation, and use of modern development techniques and best practices to better align with the DHS Digital Strategy. Xcelerate’s team includes Agile 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’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 bring experts in applying Scrum and Lean/Kanban processes, extreme programming (XP), DevOps and DevSecOps, and Scaled Agile.
Xcelerate President and CEO Mark Drever stated, “Xcelerate is proud to have this opportunity to share the best practices and solutions we have introduced across the Federal Government with DHS and its Components on this important vehicle. Our staff has experience coaching and mentoring teams to increase the adoption of an Agile mindset and improve program efficiency across DHS, the Department of Defense (DoD), and the Federal Civilian Sector, as well as with commercial entities. This BPA is a key driver for Xcelerate’s growth plans in the coming years and we are excited to have the opportunity to compete for this highly important work.”
