CGI Receives $267M DHS Task Order to Develop Cybersecurity Shared Services Platform

CGI (NYSE: GIB) has secured a potential six-year, $267M task order to help the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency create a shared services platform to support federal customers under the Department of Homeland Security's Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation initiative.

The company said Wednesday it will also provide a catalog of tools and services intended for more than 75 agencies that are not subject to the Chief Financial Officer Act.

The General Services Administration's Federal Systems Integration and Management Center awarded the task order under the Alliant procurement vehicle.

Stephanie Mango, a senior vice president of CGI, said the company has supported CISA over the past four years though the Credential Management and DEFEND Group C contracts.

Mango added the partnership has helped multiple agencies address cybersecurity challenges and will work to help DHS meet goals of the cross-agency initiative.

The company's federal business received the CRED task order under the second CDM phase in 2016 to provide identity management services to 26 agency customers, followed by the DEFEND Group C award in 2018 to standardize security stacks for seven large government organizations.
