Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin are among several other companies to be selected by the US Air Force to compete for task orders under a five-year Software Development Security Operations (DevSecOps) Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) contract.

As part of the BOA, the primes have been tasked with supporting the Air Force’s ‘LevelUP Code Works’ Platform One’ team’s product development by providing full-stack DevSecOps engineers, cloud engineers, infrastructure engineers and other key personnel to include developers, trainers and consultants.

LevelUp is in the processing of developing advanced cyber tools for the Air Force and Department of Defense by leveraging military compliant Lean-Agile and DevSecOps methodologies.


“We look forward to continuing our partnership with the US Air Force and delivering expanded DevSecOps tools, services and talent to support current and future Department of Defense cyber missions,” Dedra Bonner, program manager, Unified Platform system coordinator program at Northrop Grumman, said.

“Through the BOA, we’ll provide leading-edge DevSecOps and Lean-Agile services to ensure the US Air Force continues to operate, pivot and adapt faster than our adversaries.”

Yvonne Hodge, senior vice president of enterprise business transformation at Lockheed Martin, added, “Software is at the heart of every system we deliver, and we understand the DoD’s urgent need for faster deliveries, more powerful mission capabilities, and open-source, open-architecture foundations for software.

“Platform One is a truly innovative approach that is propelling the DoD’s DevSecOps evolution, and the collaboration with industry has helped us build infrastructure and capabilities that are well-aligned to the DoD’s vision.”
