Air Force Services Enterprise Web Project

Transforming the Digital Experience for Air Force and Space Force Personnel & Their Dependents.

Welcome to the Air Force Services Enterprise Web Project!

Greetings from team LEAP interactive! We’re thrilled to introduce you to this groundbreaking initiative aimed at enhancing the digital experience for Air Force and Space Force personnel and their dependents.

We understand the importance of preserving valuable content, especially in cases where hosting vendors are not 889 compliant. Our team is dedicated to working closely with individual FSS marketing teams to prevent content loss and facilitate seamless transitions to compliant hosting solutions.

Together, we’re embarking on a transformative journey to create a digital landscape that reflects the excellence and dedication of the United States Air Force.

Thank you for joining us on this exciting adventure!

PURPOSE

The Air Force Services Enterprise Web Project is designed to develop a cohesive network of force support websites that not only leverage cutting-edge technology but also prioritize compliance and elevate the end-user experience.

Our mission is clear: to ensure that every interaction with our websites is seamless, informative, and enriching.

PHASES

Currently, we’re in Phase 1 of a two-phase journey. Phase 1 focuses on securing existing web content while simultaneously ensuring compliance with Section 889 regulations across all current Force Support Squadron websites. This crucial phase lays the foundation for the project’s success by safeguarding our online presence and ensuring adherence to federal guidelines.

In Phase 2, we’ll collaborate closely with each Force Support Marketing team to optimize web content and explore opportunities for enhancing the end-user experience. This phase represents an exciting opportunity for innovation and collaboration as we work together to shape the future of force support websites.

TIMELINE

To ensure efficient execution, Team Leap Interactive, in partnership with Air Force Services, has developed a comprehensive build schedule. This schedule is driven by the expiration dates of existing websites’ hosting agreements, with FSS websites prioritized based on these dates.

By aligning our efforts with hosting agreements, we’re proactively addressing potential challenges and minimizing disruption to website operations.

Build Process: Transforming Your Website

Embarking on the journey to revamp your website with the Air Force Services Enterprise Web Project is an exciting endeavor, and our meticulous build process ensures a smooth and seamless transition every step of the way. 

1. Onboarding Call:

The journey begins with an onboarding call between your FSS marketing team and LEAP Interactive. This crucial conversation serves as an introduction to the project, where we address any questions, clarify information, and outline the build process. Additionally, it’s an opportunity for us to understand your unique requirements, such as local practices or specific features you wish to retain.

During this call, we also determine the “Go Dark Date,” which marks the renewal date of your hosting service. Since renewing may not be an option due to compliance concerns, this date is crucial to prevent any downtime for your website.

2. Priority Assignment:

Following the onboarding call, we assign a priority number to each base discussed. This number dictates the order in which websites are built, with 4 to 5 websites typically completed every two weeks. When your FSS team’s number comes up, we notify you that we’re ready to begin building your site.

3. Content Optimization:

Before we commence building your site, this is the optimal time for content optimization. We ask that the FSS teams ensure there are no missing links or overlooked details, and that your content is up to date. 

4. Building Your Site:

Once we aare ready to build your site, we create a staging site where we begin the process of transferring content from your existing live site. Typically, there’s no need for you to provide content unless there are specific additions not present on your current site. In such cases, we provide you with a Google Drive folder for easy content sharing.

5. Site Review and Launch Preparation:

Once the new website is built, we notify your FSS team and provide access to the staging site for review. Simultaneously, we present a punch list detailing any pending items that require resolution before the site can launch.

6. Site Launch:

After addressing all items on the punch list and reviewing the staging site, we schedule the launch of your new website. With meticulous attention to detail and a focus on your needs, we ensure a successful and seamless transition to your enhanced online presence.

6. Post Launch:

After your website has been launched, you can take advantage of our support team.
