    Selecting a good agile software development team to develop a particular software is a complex issue for public authorities. This selection is often based on the estimated total cost of the project in an official request for proposals. In this paper we describe an alternative approach where three performance factorsand the estimated cost were evaluated and weighted to find the best agile team for the project. The performance factors included: team collaboration, user experience focus, user stories delivery and the quality of the code. Teams that fulfilled predefined technical requirements were invited to take part in workshops. We describe the process of evaluating the three performance factors during and after the workshops and the results of the evaluations. The team that focused on one user story during the workshop and emphasised user experience, accessibility and security issues got the highest rating and were selected for the project.
