SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A core element of the President’s 2nd Term Management Agenda is significantly improving the effectiveness and delivery of government programs and services. Increasingly, the delivery of Federal services is through digital channels like Web sites and mobile applications making it critically important to have smarter IT delivery and stronger agency accountability for success. One way to advance smarter digital service delivery is by putting the right processes and practices in place to drive outcomes and accountability and allow people and companies to do their best work. The Digital Services Playbook and the TechFAR handbook document these best practices and processes: • The Digital Services Playbook identifies a series of ‘‘plays’’ drawn from successful best practices from the private sector and government that, if followed together, will help government build effective digital services. The plays outline an approach to delivering services that increases our ability to be flexible, iterative and, most importantly, to focus on the needs of the people that use our services. • The TechFAR Handbook highlights the flexibilities in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) that can help agencies implement ‘‘plays’’ from the Playbook that would be accomplished with acquisition support—with a particular focus on how to use contractors to support an iterative, customer-driven software development process, as is routinely done in the private sector. OFPP, E-Gov, and OSTP intend for these documents to be used together by SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 agencies as resources for the successful delivery of digital services. Comments are especially welcome on additional best practices or lessons learned that may be appropriate for inclusion in this guidance. Lisa A.
