Award: California’s Agile Development Pre-Qualified (ADPQ) Vendor Pool

Today I helped Ad Hoc get selected for the California’s Agile Development Pre-Qualified (ADPQ) vendor pool. Here’s how the California Department of Technology describes the selection:

The California Department of Technology has announced the selection of 13 vendors who are now part of the State’s expanded Agile Development Pre-Qualified (ADPQ) vendor pool. Along with 11 companies that were previously selected in 2016 when the vendor pool was initially created, there are now 24 vendors eligible to bid on opportunities for agile and user-centered design services. Read more about the establishment of the ADPQ vendor pool on our website: https://cwds.ca.gov/vendors. While CWDS has been the first state organization to use the vendor pool for the development of the Child Welfare Services – New System (CWS-NS) project, CDT expanded the pool to increase competition and allow all state agencies and departments to use it. Read the Notification of Selection here.

My role was to manage the overall process, participate in product strategy meetings around the CAlert prototype, and prepare and deliver Ad Hoc’s response.

Here’s the Notification of Selection – PQVP DS-AS List and here’s a screenshot of the prototype:
