Editor's note: This story was updated at 1:50 p.m. April 21, 2006, to correct an error. InfoZen will manage systems for the Transportation Security Administration, not the Trandsportation Safety Administration. We regret the error.
InfoZen will manage information technology systems in the Transportation Security Administration's Office of Transportation Threat Assessment and Credentialing (TTAC) under a new contract.
The agreement, worth as much as $148 million, calls on InfoZen to operate and maintain the IT infrastructure, networks and program applications for TTAC, said Raj Ananthanpillai, InfoZen’s chief executive officer.
TTAC assesses threats to land, sea and air transportation and oversees traveler credentialing programs, including Registered Traveler.
InfoZen’s contract is for 18 months with four one-year extensions, company officials said. The company will receive a base fee, with additional incentive payments based on performance.
InfoZen has worked extensively on FirstGov.gov, the U.S. government’s Web portal, company officials said. It has also worked on other projects for the Homeland Security Department, of which TSA is a part.
