Redefining how the government does digital.
We’re a collection of agile technology and design firms that serve—or aspire to serve—the government.
Change is hard. Systematic change is even harder. That’s why these design and development firms have teamed up to bring the innovation and agility that’s become the backbone of commercial digital services to the government.
This kind of digital transformation uses technology as a means to a goal—to dramatically improve the performance, reach, and customer experience of government services.
It’s the difference between having to work to interact with government services and having those services work for you.
What does digital transformation look like?
True digital transformation within the government has meaningful, tangible benefits for the public.
It means that the hundreds of millions of people who interact with our government could do so easily, efficiently, and dare we say, even enthusiastically through their phones, tablets, and computers.
It means that analog, paper-based processes are modernized into integrated, online workflows to speed up how the government works and save taxpayer dollars.
It means that technology infrastructure becomes more scalable, flexible, and secure, allowing services to work faster and more reliably.
The current “big box” contractor model is failing to deliver the kinds of collaboration, transparency, and efficiency that smaller, more forward-thinking firms excel at. Our goal is to collaborate, not compete, by bringing like-minded small to midsize companies together to work toward the common mission of serving the American public by improving how government works.
Our manifesto to do just that.
Community over credit
Each win moves us all closer to digital transformation
Purpose over profit
We’re mission-driven, not money-driven
Users over stakeholders
If we don’t meet user needs, business goals will never truly be met
Innovation over risk management
Change comes from taking chances
Outcomes over activities
Success is what you accomplish, not how much you did to get there
Delivery over deliberation
Perfection only exists once users tell you it’s perfect
