The single sign-on platform needs improved security, scalability and availability as the program pushes for broader use across government.
Since 2017, the team at 18F — part of the Technology Transformation Service in the General Services Administration — has offered a single sign-on platform available to all agencies: Login.gov. As the platform gains wider use through the federal government, TTS is looking for a team of contractors to support continued development and improve the user experience with the site.
Login.gov was launched in 2017 to function as a single credentialing portal for citizens and other users interacting with the government through agencies’ websites and apps. Rather than require users to create unique log-ins for every service, Login.gov would allow people to create a single account that could be reused infinitely across the federal government.
To date, the platform is used by 17 agencies for more than 60 apps, according to figures on the Login.gov site.
As GSA looks to spread the use of Login.gov throughout the public sector, TTS released a request for information to inform the creation of a new support and development contract. The RFI for the Engineering Support Services contract posted to eBuy included a statement of need, provided to Nextgov by market intelligence firm The Pulse of GovCon.
