Oteemo Awarded SBIR Phase III Contract

Reston, Virginia – Oteemo, a leader in the Enterprise Cloud Native & DevSecOps Transformation Consultancy industry, has been awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase III contract.  The five-year vehicle, sponsored by the U.S. Air Force, is managed by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) and is accessible to clients throughout the Federal government.

This SBIR Phase III award is a major milestone in Oteemo’s successful history in supporting Federal and commercial clients with Cloud Native, Kubernetes, Cyber, application modernization and Enablement offerings to help with DevSecOps environments and migrate to a true agile cloud environment. 

“Digital transformation is not just about technology.  It also encompasses the transition of an organization’s people—upscaling, training and cultural adoption of modern agile constructs is key to a successful workforce.  Oteemo’s SBIR is the integration of all these dependencies and technologies and is a quick and efficient way for a client to acquire these services and meet the challenges of modern software factories and development environments supporting mission requirements.”

– John Humphrey, VP of Federal Business Unit.

Oteemo’s SBIR Phase III IDIQ contract enables federal organizations to adopt and mature DevSecOps, cloud-native, and enterprise architecture in a rapid manner to its infrastructure.


Managed by GSA, the SBIR Phase III enables any federal organization looking for these solutions to now directly engage Oteemo without the need of an intermediary. Additionally, Oteemo is able to extend our SBIR Phase III vehicle to its strategic partners. Oteeemo can collaborate with strategic partners to offer more complete solutions to organizations.

“Oteemo was able to take its service offerings in the commercial space and successfully apply it in the federal government arena. In a short period of time, we’ve created a repeatable solution and offering for federal agencies to help them quickly meet their needs in the rapidly changing tech environment.” – Raja Gudepu, CEO
