Washington, D.C. – October 7, 2022 – MakNuAx, an experienced solutions-oriented SBA-approved Joint Venture between Makpar and NuAxis Innovations focused on modernizing federal IT infrastructure by combining the discipline of Customer Experience (CX) with an iterative, streamlined Development, Security, and Operations (DevSecOps) approach, today announced that it has been awarded a spot on a $200M Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) contract to provide the Small Business Administration (SBA) with Enterprise Agile Delivery Services (EADS). MakNuAx will integrate essential Customer Experience (CX), Human-Centered Design (HCD), and Agile Methodology best practices to enhance our solutions for these businesses.
The purpose of SBA EADS is to ease the burden on the small business community in regards to their engagement and interaction with the SBA. The pandemic highlighted the importance of small businesses as the backbone of our economy and the impending need for the SBA to provide more personalized, timely support for their operations.
“This is a great opportunity to help the SBA quickly respond to the evolving needs of the small business community,” said Tariq Islam, Director of Technology at Makpar. “We strongly believe building an automated CI/CD pipeline, while using other fail-fast methodology, will help SBA stakeholders deliver solutions faster that better serve small businesses.”
“SBA’s mission is essential since small businesses are truly the foundation of the American Dream. I’m so excited to support this mission using CX and HCD tools to help small businesses better access these critical services,” said Amanda Chavez, V.P. of Customer Experience (CX) at NuAxis.
