Microconsulting Work Statement - Governance Models in Public and Private Sector #18
Microconsulting Work Statement - Governance Models in Public and Private Sector
VA has the need to establish a governance model for the Lighthouse program. The goal of the governance model is to create standardized processes for deciding (1) the prioritization of which APIs to build, (2) the data models and standards to which to build the APIs (such as dates and times should follow RFC 3339), (3) how to get the APIs to production usage, and (4) how to make the APIs valuable to third party consumers. VA believes each of these processes should follow a standard policy driven approach based on private and public sector best practices and this governance model will define how VA builds and manages APIs.
It is not anticipated that this work will conflict the Contractor out of future Lighthouse work. Any OCI concern can be directed to the Contracting Officer.
As the VA Lighthouse Product Owner seeking the appropriate Governance model, I would like to understand, with the intention to adopt, best practices from the private and public sector, specifically for prioritizing APIs to build, standards to which to build APIs, and making the APIs usable by external consumers. We would like the primary research performed to gather best practices around:
The Contractor shall participate in a combined retrospective upon completion of performance estimated to be one hour in duration.
Definition of Done
VA anticipates a 2-week iteration to be sufficient. 2-week iteration shall start on an agreed upon date. Vendors may propose alternate time frame for VA's consideration.
In performance of this effort, the contractor shall not perform a function that requires access to a VA system or VA sensitive information (e.g., system administrator privileged access to a VA system, or contractor systems or processes that utilize VA sensitive information). Additionally, the contractor shall not connect one or more contractor-owned IT devices to a VA internal trusted network. Finally, this acquisition does not involve the storage, generating, transmitting, or exchanging of VA sensitive information.
