Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC), ManTech International (NASDAQ: MANT) and Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAI) will compete to become a prime contractor for a $6 billion Department of Homeland Security cybersecurity program.

Jill Aitoro of the Washington Business Journal reports all three companies confirmed their plans to her and Sam Visner, lead cyber executive at Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC), said his company is interested in the five-year program.

Federal agencies and governments at the state, local, tribal and territorial governments will use the blanket purchase agreement to acquire cybersecurity tools and services, according to Aitoro’s story.

Aitoro reports companies interested in becoming primes will have to outline how they will use small businesses as subcontractors when responding to a request for quotes.

The continuous monitoring-as-a-service program is intended to secure unclassified government networks (click over to ExecutiveGov for more details on the program).
