The U.S. Forest Service is modernizing and simplifying their permitting processes. One piece of this is to provide for “ePermitting”, or making the applications for many Forest Service permits available online. The U.S. Forest Service worked with the GSA 18F team to define a project for procurement from the 18F Agile BPA holders. This application is for a public front-end intake module for use by non-commercial groups, temporary outfitter, and guide permits.
Flexion was awarded this competitive bid in April and is currently in the process of conducting user research, web development and user testing. Our scrum team is working closely with the Forest Service Product Owner, UX and technical leads from 18F and the user community to ensure we are developing an intake module to meet the needs of the Forest Service permit applicants. We are honored and excited to be partnering with 18F and Forest Service!
