Paradigm upgrades Archives emergency plans software

Contract calls for improvements to agency's nationwide OpsPlanner system

Paradigm Holdings Inc. will provide continuity of operations and emergency management software support for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) under a prime contract with an estimated potential value of $1.3 million.

Under the contract, Paradigm will provide comprehensive support and subject matter expertise for the agency’s emergency management program, including a review of NARA continuity of operations (COOP) and occupant emergency plans, as well as the creation of a NARA pandemic influenza response plan.

The services will support NARA’s integration of OpsPlanner, the COOP and emergency management software tool NARA has used for three years, the company said in a statement today.

OpsPlanner, which is used by all NARA locations nationwide, enhances planning and recovery capabilities by automating many labor-intensive tasks.

The tool also enables NARA to access all plans and associated records following any disaster affecting a NARA facility, and by providing the agency with a mechanism for instant notification of all stakeholders following a disaster or other emergency, the company said.

Paradigm Holdings, of Rockville, Md., is a provider of comprehensive information technology and cybersecurity solutions to federal agencies. The company has approximately 200 employees.
