“The Lighthouse program is pivoting VA towards becoming an Application Programming Interface (API) driven digital enterprise, which will establish the Next Generation Open Digital Platform for Veterans and accelerate the transformation in core domains of VA, such as Health, Benefits, Burial and Memorials. This platform will be a system for designing, developing, publishing, operating, monitoring, analyzing, iterating and optimizing VA’s API ecosystem.”
“We have posted five draft Lighthouse Microconsulting work statements and are looking for feedback via comments within each issue or email (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com). We are interested to know whether these are scoped appropriately for the micropurchase threshold, what additional information you would require to further your understanding, and any other feedback you can provide.”
“Due Date: Please provide your input by March 16 @ 5pm.” – Read more here.
G2X TAKE: Here we go. We don’t typically post FBO items on G2X as these are widely distributed, but, as we heard in Vegas, this latest approach by VA does have large and small firms taking notice as they try and determine the near and long-term impacts of this type of an acquisition strategy and how/if their firms will try and play.
Thoughts? Comments? Passing fad/Here to stay? Is your firm planning to respond or just too small?
