Be Informed’s US implementation partner CACI developed an application that matches data, handles workflows, notifies users, supports multiple agencies and provides end of year reports in 2 months on a brand new government cloud network.
The Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) program needed to be updated to support the expanding population of students interested in supporting foreign missions virtually. The projects were listed on their public website, loaded via excel spreadsheets, and students applied for positions through USA Jobs. Matching the data was always a manual process and selecting students was cumbersome.
CACI identified the problem in June, and proposed the solution and deployed it by the end of August; just over two months from identification to deployment. The VSFS application was the first application on the new US Foreign Affairs Network and the first federal deployment of Be Informed. This required passing of federal security reviews and accreditation prior to deployment.
