The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has released a draft solicitation for a multiple-award contract to obtain digital products and services that will enable user-centered experiences. The contract, known as Secure, Performant, Reliable and User-Centered Experiences (SPURCE), aims to support software development, technical advising, service design, data science, and product support operations.
SPURCE is specifically set aside for service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs). Industry experts predict a potential ceiling of $2.7 billion for the contract. This presents a significant opportunity for SDVOSBs in the technology sector to secure government contracts and showcase their abilities in delivering innovative and user-centered digital solutions.
VA is looking to build on the success of its previous awarded contract, the Customer Experience, DevOps, and Agile Releases contract. This $247.3 million contract covered information technology and commercial application development support services. With the SPURCE contract, VA aims to further enhance customer experience and streamline their digital offerings.
Interested parties are invited to respond to the draft solicitation September 21. This is an excellent opportunity for businesses looking to work with the VA and contribute to improving digital experiences for veterans and their families.
