GSA to Proceed with Cybersecurity Tech Acquisition Program’s 2nd Phase

1 min read

cybersecurityThe General Services Administration expects to issue contract modifications within the next month for the second phase of a $6 billion Department of Homeland Security continuous diagnostics and mitigation program, FCW reported Tuesday.

Sean Lyngaas writes the program’s initial phase offered government agencies a range of tools for identifying devices across their networks.

The next phase will see vendors providing network boundary security and identity management tools for customer agencies to prevent unauthorized system access, and phase 3 will focus on incident response approaches, according to FCW.

“Each of the phases is an add-on to what was previously there,” Jim Piche, group manager at GSA’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center, told audience at the Federal IT Acquisition Summit in Washington.

Lyngaas reports GSA is building a database system that contracting officers can use to search cybersecurity products and services that are available through the CDM blanket purchase agreement.
