The contract has an initial one-year term, and three one-year options.

USP3 is an unclassified network that provides the DHS Operations Center with around the clock access to a various industries, agencies and critical infrastructure. It also serves as a two-way conduit for information sharing and a database of locally knowledgeable experts.

The USP3 can communicate with nearly 40,000 members now, and DHS plans to expand that to 200,000.
