Office of 18F
18F, as part of the General Services Administration, partners with federal agencies to build and buy digital services that improve the user experience of government. Together, we create a unified team by pairing our technical expertise with your program knowledge. Partner with 18F to deliver projects that fulfill federal rules, stay within budget, and provide excellent value to the public.
We envision a country whose government consistently offers digital services that instill pride and trust, meet user needs, are secure, and are delivered quickly and at reasonable cost.
We develop partnerships with agencies to help them deliver exceptional digital experiences that address their strategic initiatives. Through our work together, we also aim to strengthen government technology practices in ways that last beyond our formal partnerships. We effect change by practicing user-centered development, testing to validate hypotheses, shipping often, and deploying products in the open.
