Tech Incubator

Programs that enable VA modernization by tapping into emerging technologies, connecting developers with VA data, and making human centered design (HCD) the way we design all VA products.

  • Product Marketplace

    Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) products are third-party services and software that can help the VA staff more efficiently and effectively meet their mission. See how VA OIT is working with vendors and VA staff to streamline the process.

  • Lighthouse

    Lighthouse is an API platform that gives developers secure access to the VA data they need to build helpful tools and services for Veterans. See what data is available and how partners are already using it to improve services for Veterans.

Robotic Process Automation

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an emerging technology that has potential to earn organization-wide savings to automate routine, predictable, and manual processes via a “robot”. VA is assessing potential use cases and plans to establish an RPA Center of Excellence (COE) to accelerate the use of RPA across the agency.
