The Client was the lead agency for an initiative seeking to consolidate the online rulemaking applications of all federal agencies. The client needed an independent evaluation of the existing government systems to determine the optimal solution for the consolidated application. Once the best solution was defined, the client needed to update the business case to set forth the optimal government-wide strategy for implementing the solution.
The Client engaged Excella to define the optimal solution. Excella began by conducting an independent validation and verification (IV&V) analysis of existing government systems. Excella developed a repeatable and consistent assessment methodology to apply in evaluating the existing technology and processes of fourteen agencies. Excella evaluated each application, process, and platform, scoring each against established criteria. Excella then identified the best practices which would serve as the optimal consolidated platform for the entire federal government. Finally, Excella developed a full business case for the construction and roll-out of a new government-wide system. In accordance with OMB requirements, the business case contained full cost, cost avoidance, and net present value analyses across six fiscal years, along with risk management, acquisition strategy, and justification analysis.
