Falls Church, VA: September 30, 2022:

Karthik Consulting wins the United States Coast Guard (USCG) Software Factory Implementation and Sustainment prime contract.

Karthik Consulting, LLC (KC) today announced that it won a prime contract to develop USCG’s Software Factory (SF). KC will work with USCG’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber and Intelligence Service Center (C5ISC) to collaboratively develop a SF which embodies methods for translating commercial practices and DoD requirements into repeatable, self-sustaining processes.  These processes will establish, grow, operate, and adapt scalable, high-quality, and secure in-house agile software operations.

Team KC will design, develop, and implement the SF with DevSecOps capabilities and processes for building software – including cloud services. The system will be the first across all DHS components to be designated for continuous Authorization to Operate (cATO), thus ushering in the ability for USCG to continuously develop and deploy software applications across their entire portfolio – replacing the traditional time-consuming ATO processes, and consequently saving time, money, and effort. KC will also develop Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and training videos, allowing USCG to fully sustain factory operations and growth at the contract’s conclusion.

“This is a great win for us, combining our skills in DevSecOps, cybersecurity, and cloud development and deployment. We are thrilled to be a contractor introducing Software Factories into the federal space, seeing them as an integral step for agencies to truly realize CI/CD capabilities,” said Karthik Balasubramanian, KC’s President and CEO.

Felix Martin, KC’s VP for Business development and Capture, said “We are excited to be chosen as the prime contractor for USCG’s Software Factory, among several competitive bids from major DevSecOps players in the market.”
