BAE Systems has won a $40 million award to provide critical information security safeguards, including certification and accreditation, to ensure the confidentiality and privacy of FBI computer networks in the United States and worldwide.
Under the new contract, BAE Systems will serve as the prime contractor offering information security risk assessments.
“We’re serving as the gatekeepers for the FBI in the cyber world,” said Tom Sechler, vice president and general manager of the company’s Intelligence & Security sector. “With the level of management, expert staffing and quality control that we’re providing the customer, everyone at the FBI can click ‘send’ with peace of mind.”
It is the first order awarded in the Information Assurance Program Support contract vehicle, a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity effort worth $134 million.
