Treasury awards Avineon IT security work

The Treasury Department awarded Avineon a $10 million contract to provide the Bureau of Engraving and Printing with information technology security program management and operations support, certification and accreditation, and compliance monitoring support for new and existing systems.

The services will support the bureau in designing and manufacturing high-quality security documents, which also deter counterfeiting, the company said in its announcement Jan. 15.

The task order under the IRS Total Information Processing Support Services contract vehicle has a one-year base and three option years.

The printing and engraving office produces billions of Federal Reserve notes for the Federal Reserve System annually and several security documents, such as portions of U.S. passports, homeland security materials, military identification cards, and immigration and naturalization certificates. The bureau relies on its computer-based systems to support business activities and processes, such as security, procurement, financial management, product accountability, human resources management, engineering, research, product development and maintenance. The bureau maintains a number of systems, including local-area network/wide-area network, IBM mainframe, management information system, public sales, enterprise architecture, manufacturing support and systems that support physical security at its two locations in Washington and Fort Worth, Texas.
