The General Services Administration has developed digital versions of its Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management Roadmap and associated implementation guidance and put them online with the adoption of 18F’s Federalist platform.
We've added two powerful, new tools to the U.S. Web Design Standards development workflow. Fractal is a development, testing, and documentation tool, and Federalist is an 18F hosting platform that makes it easy to generate previews and simplify our process.
If you're a program manager or a federal web developer you've probably been given a seemingly simple task: Create a basic website as part of a new initiative at your agency. The hardest part is often not crafting the content or designing the prototype, but getting the security and privacy compliance in order to launch and maintain the actual website’s compliance status. For that work, you might have to hire a contractor or put extra strain on your agency's web team. It shouldn't be that way.
We want 18f.gsa.gov to be an exemplar of what 18F can do for partner agencies. One way to do that is to host it the way we’d host a similar site for a partner agency, and that means moving to Federalist.
We built the first iteration of Federalist in a matter of months. Today, we’re lifting the curtain and looking at what went into building the platform, so you can get a sense of what it looks like when 18F starts a project from scratch.
