Pragmatics won a position on track three of the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, which covers independent verification and validation of IT products and services.

“Pragmatics has been a DHS partner since 2006, providing IV&V, security, and test services for several components,” said acting CEO Dr. Kim Nguyen. “We look forward to broadening our relationship with DHS to serve their important mission of protecting our homeland.”

Pragmatics will compete for task orders to verify and validate IT products and services according to DHS’ standards for design, cost, schedule, security and performance.

The company will also provide DHS cybersecurity services, including helping protect critical infrastructure.

The company provides federal agencies software engineering, systems engineering, program management and IT management services along with audiovisual and learning technologies.

Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute has given the company an appraisal and a Maturity Level 5 rating.

The company also holds the ISO 9001, ISO/IEC 20000-1 and ISO/IEC 27001 certifications.
