Microconsulting allows VA teams to get immediate, high-impact support from the private sector while staying under the micropurchase threshold.

Through this program, VA teams can hire vendors to complete discrete, well-defined tasks in support of larger digital service projects. Right now, the microconsulting program primarily supports VA’s API platform. This innovative procurement method provides:

  • Access to high-quality technology services vendors
  • Short delivery schedules that support iterative development
  • Reduced administrative burden for contracting teams
  • GitHub-based procurements that promote transparency

VA OIT manages the program through a public GitHub repository. Head to the repository to learn how microconsulting RFQs work and see work statements and deliverables from past purchases.
