IT and business processing services provider CGI announced Jan. 17 it has won a task order by the General Services Administration‘s Federal Acquisition Service on behalf of the Homeland Security Department. The Credential Management Task Order provides identity management services for 26 federal agencies. Issued under the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Continuous Monitoring as a Service Blanket Purchase Agreement and GSA IT Schedule 70, the total contract value is $102 million over two years.
“We are committed to federal clients as they work to comply with evolving standards while confronting an array of cybersecurity vulnerabilities and threats,” CGI Senior Vice-President Stephanie Mango said. “We are proud to provide this vital support to the Department of Homeland Security and provide our identity management solutions for all federal agencies involved in the task order.”
CGI will provide the participating agencies with tools, sensors and services to implement elements of credential management, a key element of the CDM Phase 2 Program to strengthen policies and practices for all authorized users at participating agencies. CGI will also help federal agencies working to comply with the White House’s Cybersecurity Strategy and Implementation Plan, which requires strong authentication for network accounts of unprivileged users.
The DHS contract is CGI’s second award on the CDM procurement vehicle, following a consulting contract awarded by the Government Accountability Office in September. Mango said recent awards reflect ongoing momentum behind CGI’s cybersecurity, identity management and other digital solutions that are increasingly in demand among federal customers.
“CGI will continue to offer flexible solutions that allow agencies to strengthen cybersecurity expertise in the model best suited to their needs,” Mango said.
