House seeks help in assessing vulnerable Web sites

The House of Representatives is seeking a contractor that will help the chamber evaluate certain online portals and servers using software that looks for Web site vulnerabilities.

In a recent notice, the House's chief acquisition officer said the vendor must use WebInspect, a vulnerability scan product developed by SPI Dynamics of Atlanta.

The vendor must evaluate House committee Web sites and servers, the notice said, and educate CAO staff in how to assess risks associated with any vulnerabilities that are found.

Questions on the solicitation are due Aug. 4, with bids due Aug. 25.
