Apptis captures TSA personnel security system deal

Apptis Inc. will develop a system to process credentials for 70,000 employees and contractors of the Transportation Security Administration, under a $1.7 million contract.

Apptis of Chantilly, Va., will redesign the agency's Background Investigation Tracking System, which records, tracks and reports on employee and contractor investigations relating to security background checks and clearances.

The redesigned system will include identity management, case management and credentialing, and will be compatible with Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 and Federal Information Processing Standard 201.

Apptis will create the solution using an Agile development framework for software engineering, which focuses on minimizing risk and deploying the solution in iterations, the company said. It will integrate Oracle Case Management and ActivIdentity Card Management with TSA's operating platform enterprise architecture.

Privately held Apptis, which had annual revenue of $700 million in fiscal 2005, ranks No. 43 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list of the largest federal IT contractors.
