Technica Corp. has won a $95 million General Services Administration blanket purchase agreement to provide information assurance security engineering support for the FBI and the Justice Department.
Technica said that the focus of this multiple-award BPA is to provide information assurance and cross domain solutions across the entire Justice Department, helping them to more securely and efficiently interface with other law enforcement agencies around the nation.
The five-year vehicle will yield “solutions specifically tailored to FBI and DOJ,” said Technica president and chief executive officer, Miguel Collado. To this end, he mentioned “putting together team of companies that have complementary technical depth and breadth in information assurance and cross domain solutions.”
The team is known for its expertise in cross domain solutions and information assurance, Collado said but also has expertise in cybersecurity. Members of the team, who are each contributing engineering resources and information assurance experts, include Boeing Information Solutions, LGS Innovations, Qbase, SafeNet Inc. and Vigilant Services Corp.
These experts provide domain expertise, capability and resources in technology areas. These areas include cross domain solutions, secure remote access, secure wireless technologies and information assurance through application of confidentiality, integrity and availability controls.
While the FBI Security Engineering BPA is active, task orders may be issued under these technology areas, the company said.
The company also said that the team has information assurance-related capabilities like cryptography and secure software development, as well as programmatic support capabilities like business process reengineering and independent verification and validation.
