State & Local Domain
We work with state and local governments to help with prototyping and procurement for federally-funded digital public services, using agile acquisition consulting services.
Work with us
We believe State and Local technology can be reliable, accessible, integrated, user-friendly, and effective.
Our team of designers, web developers, and acquisition specialists are federal employees working with federal, state, and local agencies. Agencies we’ve worked with or are currently working with:
- Alaska Department of Health and Social Services
- California Child Welfare Digital Services
- State of Vermont Agency of Human Services
- Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development
We partner with State and Local Governments to help with the following:
Some projects of course fall outside of these categories, but it’s a good way to think about our work. For 18F to partner with state & local agencies, our work together must involve federal funding and be scoped to agile acquisition consulting.
Our partnerships can support a variety of projects:
Short term: Technical Advisors
18F staff can provide short term support (under 80 hours) to assist governments in need of advice on technical strategy.
Medium term: ‘Tiger Teams’
3-month engagements with a team of 2-3 digital experts (spanning skills like engineering, design, product and data strategy) to support the scoping, budgeting and vetting of a technology vendor team.
Long term: Digital Consulting
Longer-term (3-12 month) agile and user-centered engagements, geared toward legacy modernization procurements and transformation in your ability to procure agile software teams.
