The Department of Homeland Security has awarded three new task order contracts worth $140 million combined to Northrop Grumman, Booz Allen Hamilton and Hewlett-Packard for the implementation of continuous diagnostics and mitigation services, FCW reported Monday.
Mark Rockwell writes these awards are the third, fourth and fifth contracts under the continuous-monitoring-as-a-service blanket purchase agreement and expand DHS’ CDM program to 17 more federal civilian agencies.
DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said these new task order contracts put overall CDM coverage at 97 percent of the federal civilian sector, the report said.
Northrop’s $32.5 million Group C award, Booz Allen’s $82.9 million Group D award and HP Enterprise Services’ $21.7 million Group E award come after the $29 million Group A award to Knowledge Consulting Group and $39.3 million Group B award to Booz Allen.
Rockwell reports the task orders under these contracts are part of the first phase of CDM implementation.
