GSA makes last awards for security services pact

The Federal Technology Service's Office of Information Security has awarded the last of its Program Safeguard contracts for information security services and last week awarded the first task order under the program.

The Safeguard blanket purchase agreement contracts provide services for agencies developing and implementing plans to comply with Presidential Decision Directive 63, which requires agencies to protect their critical infrastructures, including information systems, from cyberattacks.

GSA awarded its first Safeguard task order to Booz-Allen&Hamilton Inc., according to Richard Krauss, program manager for Safeguard. The company will help the Department of Veterans Affairs develop a network security architectural plan for the agency's transition from a private network to the FTS 2001 public network.
