Washington, District of Columbia, UNITED STATES

Washington, D.C., Sept. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AFWERX, the U.S. Air Force’s innovation-focused program office, awarded Dcode a five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for innovation-related educational and advisory services, including acquisition strategy, tech outreach, and tech integration support. Any organization in the Department of Defense can order off the BPA, allowing agencies and program offices across the DoD to address barriers to innovation and successfully adopt emerging tech to improve mission outcomes.

Dcode has previously provided innovation lifecycle support to bases and innovation units across the Air Force. Dcode’s work with the DoD has and will continue to focus not only on engaging cutting-edge tech companies from the private sector but also on fostering the forward-leaning culture and processes that are necessary within the DoD to effectively partner with industry.

“AFWERX is on the leading edge of DoD’s efforts to leverage America’s defense industrial base and maintain our military’s competitive advantage,” said Dcode’s government managing director Lisa Gaisford. “We’re excited to continue partnering with AFWERX and other organizations across the DoD as they identify, adopt, and scale the best-in-class commercial tech needed to help U.S. service members keep our country safe.”

In the scope of the BPA, Dcode provides a suite of training courses focused on helping government organizations develop the tools they need to innovate and overcome common barriers to innovation. Dcode also provides a range of advisory services to support agile acquisition strategies and tech engagement:

  • Horizon scanning to identify sector-specific mega-trends that can inform government mission readiness
