Booz Allen takes $621M CDM task order

Booz Allen Hamilton has won a six-year, $621 million task order that makes them the first prime contractor for the next phase of the government-wide Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program to develop and install cybersecurity tools for agencies.

This order covers three current and possible future CDM phases, Booz Allen said Friday. The order is part of the larger potential $3.4 billion CDM Defend program run by the Department of Homeland Security that aims to reduce the federal government’s overall threat vulnerability.

The firm beat out one other bidder for the order originally awarded on Dec. 12, according to Federal Procurement Spending Data. Work will take place over one base year and the order has five additional one-year options. It was awarded under the General Services Administration’s Alliant 1 Unrestricted contract.

A Booz Allen spokesperson told Washington Technology the firm’s order covers agencies under Group B for CDM DEFEND. That group includes the Agriculture, Energy, Interior, Transportation and Veterans Affairs departments; Office of Personnel Management; and the Executive Office of the President, including the Office of Management and Budget.

DHS and GSA’s Federal Systems Integration and Management jointly run CDM, an initiative that seeks to defend all civilian agency “.gov” networks from cyber attacks. CDM DEFEND is an acquisition strategy that was developed to replace the current CDM monitoring-as-a-service blanket purchase agreement that expires in August.
