DHS taps ManTech for Eagle support

The Homeland Security Department's Science and Technology Directorate will receive independent verification and validation and security services from a unit of ManTech International Corp. under a new $9.7 million task order.

Work on the four-year task order through the Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions program will be performed by ManTech MBI Inc., formerly McDonald Bradley Inc.

Under the new task order, ManTech MBI will handle information technology architecture and security compliance in addition to the verification and validation. The company will perform the work on the directorate's applications and systems at DHS headquarters and at its numerous research laboratories, the company said Feb. 20.

The support will cover software applications, computers, networks, audio and video-teleconferencing, telecommunications both secure and insecure, and hardware acquisition and installation, the company said. The goal is to identify potential vulnerabilities and operational weaknesses.

ManTech MBI also will provide continuing IV&V services focusing specifically on identifying potential vulnerabilities and operational weaknesses for all of the Directorate's applications. Advisory services will include recommendations on the design and architecture of future systems to ensure that those meet DHS security standards.

Missing Link Security Inc. will be a subcontractor on this project.
