The GSA has issued a Discovery blanket purchase agreement, which it said would provide its Centers of Excellence agency partners “the flexibility and speed necessary to perform numerous discovery and assessment efforts at multiple agencies, simultaneously.”

GSA said the contract vehicle includes companies that “demonstrate a fundamental understanding of the challenges—and solutions—facing IT modernization efforts,” about a third of which are small businesses.

“We selected companies who demonstrated the potential to discover issues related to current legacy systems and develop recommendations for modern-day technological solutions to the problems our citizens face when interacting with government services,” it said in an announcement.

Affected services include change management, cloud adoption, customer experience, data analytics, information security, and IT infrastructure optimization.
