KBR’s global government services business KBRwyle, has been awarded a $71 million task order to provide cybersecurity services for the Defense Health Agency (DHA).

The Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic awarded this three-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee task order under the SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-E) contract. KBRwyle has held a seat on SeaPort-E since 2005, according to the company.

KBRwyle will assist SSC Atlantic with its cybersecurity and risk management framework (RMF) initiatives and provide support to the DHA Assessment and Authorization (A&A) division, the company said in a statement.

Under this task order, KBRwyle will provide cybersecurity A&A support. This will include ensuring DHA IT is compliant with information assurance (IA) directives and processes; preparing and reviewing RMF packages, supporting IA test procedure standardization, and performing risk assessments.
