GSA Seeks Contractors to Help with Recruiting
GSA recently released an RFI looking for contractors to help fill positions within their Technology Transformation Service, the group that works across the government to upgrade aging government technology. Apparently, they are struggling to hire security engineers, applications engineers and customer experience specialists, among others. Furthermore, the winning contractor will only be required to search and present candidates to GSA, not on-board or manage security requirements. There are currently six positions dubbed as an ‘immediate need’ for filling. The Pentagon’s Defense Digital Service has already pursued a similar effort, recently launching a program with five civilian workforce recruiters that it hopes will help it hire more tech talent from the private sector.
