DHS makes pick for personnel system work

The Homeland Security Department's human resources management system, known as MAXHR, will be designed by Northrop Grumman Corp.

The company's information technology unit in Herndon, Va., will perform the work under a blanket purchase agreement worth up to $175 million over three years, the company announced last week.

The initial task order is worth about $2 million, according to DHS.

Northrop Grumman IT will provide program management and integration services as well as expertise in pay, performance, job classification, labor relations, and adverse actions and appeals.

The company will also provide support in communications, training and organizational change management, and assist in the implementation of an enterprisewide information technology system, according to the department.
