The analysts will assess all types of breach-related data for the FBI and Department of Defense components including U.S. Transportation Command and the Joint Acquisition Protection and Exploitation Cell.
The FBI plans to fund these services through a potential contract whose effectivity may begin in March 2022. The contract’s timeline would consist of a base period and four options for continuation.
