Labor solicits $16M set-aside for cybersecurity protection

The Labor Department is offering service-disabled veterans a four-year, $16 million contract to help in securing the department’s critical IT infrastructure and information systems.

The department’s Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO) has a Cybersecurity Strategy, which calls for a coordinated effort across the DOL community to respond to evolving cyber-threats.

With the indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract, all tasks will be compliance and service oriented. The winning service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) will assess how well DOL’s Cybersecurity Assessment Module (CSAM) is protected from threats and then audit the OCFO’s information systems.

The IDIQ would also include program and application support, network and system administration, and documenting usage of various DOL systems and recommend process improvements.

More than in the past, DOL is playing a significant role securing the federal government’s non-military and non-intelligence information systems and data as well as safeguarding the nation’s critical IT infrastructure. But its information systems are changing.

DOL plans to retire PeoplePower application this year, and the workload of the New Core Financial Management System is expected to increase due to cybersecurity, technology, and other departmental requirements.

The IDIQ is set aside for SDVOSBs. The deadline for proposals is March 11.
