1 min read

Defense Information Systems Agency DISAThe Defense Information Systems Agency is looking for ways to have Silicon Valley startup businesses engage in DISA’s procurement processes despite their short venture capital investment cycles, Fedscoop reported Friday.

John Hickey, DISA chief information officer, told a media roundtable the agency seeks to harness the potential of startups but the requirement for these companies to show profit over short periods of time is a challenge, Billy Mitchell writes.

Other senior officials also told the roundtable that industry partners could serve as sponsors and be a key tool to employ the help of startups, Fedscoop said.
