Contract Award Date: May 30, 2021

Contract Award Number: 15A00021FAQA00292

“3. Nature and/or description of action to be approved: The Office of Management (OM) throught the Property Acquisitions, and Safety Division (PASD) intends to award a task order under the GSA’s Multiple Award Schedule GS-35F-0115R to Excella, Inc. 2300 Wilson Blvd Suite 600, Arlington, VA 22201-5426 DUNS: 12403404 for Agile Support Services in support of the Spartan Case Management System…”

“4. Description of supplies or services: The services to be continued are to provide Agile Support services for the continuation of the development and maintenance of the Spartan Case Management System, under the Spartan Program Management Division, OSII. For ATF to work towards fielding the minimal viable product (MVP) for criminal enforcement case management while supporting currently deployed functionality following Agile methodologies, it will need continued agile coaching and testing support for team and support staff members. The Spartan development effort uses Scrum and Kanban Agile development methodologies.

  1. Authority and rationale for limiting competition: This acquisition is conducted under the authority of FAR 8.405-6(a)(1)(i)(C) – In the interest of economy and efficiency, the new work is a logical follow-on to an original Federal Supply Schedule. ATF’s mission is unique both from a regulatory and law enforcement practice. The Spartan Program’s complex core business applications of re-engineering/software development involve many aspects of the ATF’s critical processes required to ensure mission success. The Agile Support Requirement provides testing support and coaching, and consulting services to support the Spartan Program. Since the Agile Support requirement directly supports the Spartan Program, the contract is required to match the period of performance on the main development vendor’s contract to the extent possible, as the assumption within that contract was the government will retain responsibility for providing the level and type of support required for the proposed delivery schedule asit relates tomaintaining the environment,infrastructure, and testing functions, which are currently supplied by other contractors.

All ATF contractors assigned to the Spartan Program require a background investigation (BI) before accessing ATF information and systems… Due to this mandatory BI requirement, Spartan would incur additional delays clearing a new contractor’s resources and the cost while adding administrative burden to ATF’s Personnel Security Division to perform the background investigations on a whole new team. The timeframe for clearance of new resources would most likely be impractical based on the period of performance requirement. Excella has cleared resources to staff the project, and are currently imbedded in the development teams, providing independent testing support…”
