HHS awards SRA $18.5 million PKI contract

The Health and Human Services Department has awarded SRA International Inc. of Fairfax, Va., a contract to continue providing operations and maintenance support for HHS' enterprise public-key infrastructure program.

The PKI program lets HHS employees securely collect and transmit sensitive information within the department as well as with outside organizations. The contract, awarded under the General Services Administration Federal Supply Schedule, is worth up to $18.5 million over five years if all options are exercised.

SRA has worked with HHS for two years to develop, install and support its PKI system. Under the new contract, SRA will continue to operate the system and develop efforts to enhance PKI functionality, user registration and outreach activities to encourage acceptance of the system.
