Excella, based in Arlington, VA, announced on May 23 that it was awarded a blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to provide agile coaching to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to enable the successful implementation of its next generation web-based applications. The Services for Enabling Agile Delivery (SEAD) BPA extends over five years and has a total ceiling value of up to $300 million.
