The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in partnership with the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) have selected Booz Allen Hamilton as prime contractor under the government-wide Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Dynamic and Evolving Federal Enterprise Network Defense (DEFEND) Program for Group D, with a $1.03 billion task order, consisting of a base year and five one-year options. This is the largest Federal task order and the second-largest cybersecurity task order in Booz Allen’s history, the company said in a statement.
The scope of work for the task order will enhance CDM capabilities for six agencies, including GSA, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Social Security Administration (SSA), Department of Treasury (Treasury), and the United States Postal Service (USPS).
The new task order will extend across all four CDM phases and is part of the larger DEFEND Program, which has a total value of up to $3.4 billion.
