The PlugFest Consortium
Delivering Good Government Systems Fast

The PlugFest Consortium's over 300 volunteers, from Government, Industry, and Academia. believe that working on the same problem, at the same time, together can deliver good government systems fast...that working as a team, we can go beyond slowly delivering compliant government systems.

The PlugFest Consortium originated government PlugFests, and as a result we help government programs quickly get innovative capabilities that they need, and innovative companies quickly get contracts. We do this by investigating, teaching, and helping organizations implement Agile government systems Acquisition

  • Quickly put technology capabilities together using Agile Development
  • Accurately measure what they are paying, with the right metrics, using Agile Verification & Validation
  • Quickly contract for needed capabilities through Agile Contracting
