ManTech International (Nasdaq: MANT) has received a potential six-year, $668M task order to provide cybersecurity services to Group E federal agencies under the new iteration of the Department of Homeland Security’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program.

The General Services Administration awarded the task order through CDM’s Dynamic and Evolving Federal Enterprise Network Defense program, ManTech said Wednesday.

“ManTech has played a strategic role in the CDM program for over three years, supporting more than 65 agencies in both Phases 1 and 2, and we’re honored to continue supporting the CDM program’s critical role in defending federal networks,” said Kevin Phillips, ManTech president and CEO.

Rick Wagner, president of ManTech’s mission, cyber and intelligence solutions group, said the company is excited to help government clients secure their missions against cyber threats and implement cyber capabilities through the CDM program.

Group E agencies include the departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development, Environmental Protection Agency, Small Business Administration, Securities and Exchange Commission, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the National Science Foundation.

“A lot of the work on the contract [is] going to get done through the request for service process. We’re working with the government now to understand their forecasts there,” Dan Smith, vice president of ManTech’s federal security solutions division, told ExecutiveBiz Wednesday.

Smith added that the company is also working on a shared services platform for Group F agencies.

The announcement came weeks after Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) won the $1.03B Group D task order and two months after CGI’s (NYSE: GIB) federal business received a potential $530M cyber task order in support of Group C agencies.

CACI InternationaI (NYSE: CACI) won a potential $407M task order in June to provide CDM support services to Group A agencies.
