Sterling, VA. – June 18, 2018 – REI Systems announced it was awarded a contract from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to re-platform the agency’s existing Acquisition and Assistance (A&A) planning module. The new A&A Plan application will be developed on USAID Azure utilizing REI’s Shared Government-off-the-Shelf (GOTS) platform to accelerate development, deliver the work product within the desired timeline, and produce cost efficiencies.
USAID is developing a management solution to enable the strategic planning, monitoring, and evaluation of USAID’s project portfolios and to support management functions known as the Development Information System (DIS). Under this 10-month contract, REI Systems will move USAID’s A&A Planning application onto the Microsoft Azure platform and will support USAID’s overall goal of unifying all the systems into DIS technical architecture. The re-platformed A&A Plan system will be developed on a technology stack similar to the one already adopted for DIS. REI Systems will deploy the A&A planning system within a three-month scope and will provide operations and management (O&M) support until December.
The United States Agency for International Development plays an essential role in United States foreign policy. USAID operates in more than 80 countries, working to achieve U.S. foreign policy objectives. The USAID Bureau for Management (M), Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) ensures USAID has access to cutting-edge information technology infrastructure and business systems to improve day-to-day operations as well as the response to crisis, disasters, and humanitarian assistance situations. USAID relies heavily on the availability of Information Technology systems and infrastructure to serve nations around the globe and seeks to advance data management and transparency methodologies across the Agency.
