FTC, a leading IT services and solutions provider for Federal Government agencies across the civilian, defense, and intelligence landscape, announced today the award of a new Privacy Service task order in support of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Office of Information & Technology (OI&T). This new 4-year $13.9M task was awarded as an SDVOSB set-aside on the Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology Next Generation (T4NG) contract vehicle.
The VA Office of Information & Technology (OIT&T) strives to provide high quality, effective, and efficient Information Technology (IT) services to those responsible for providing care to the Veterans at the point-of-care and throughout all the points of the Veterans’ health care through its Information Management/Information Technology (IM/IT) systems. Within OIT, the VA Privacy Service oversees policies, procedures, programs and materials that ensure personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI) collected in the course of providing benefits and services to Veterans and other beneficiaries is collected, used, and disclosed appropriately and in compliance with the law enterprise-wide.
Facing significant challenges in managing risk due to advances in the threat landscape, VA requires innovative and forward-thinking approaches to protecting its information technology (IT) networks and information systems. With increasingly-sophisticated threats such as easy-to-use cyber-attack frameworks, advanced threat actor persistence and technologic attack evolution, ransomware, and social engineering on the rise, VA must respond to increasingly sophisticated threats to protect its information assets – including Veteran PII and PHI. Privacy Service has engaged FTC to support the development, execution and maintenance of a comprehensive Department-wide VA Privacy Program – to include a Department-wide Privacy Continuous Monitoring Strategy and Privacy Continuous Monitoring Program – that will ensure compliance with applicable privacy requirements, evaluate and monitor privacy policies, procedures and processes, and ensure ongoing awareness, assessment, and management of privacy risks and controls. This win marks FTC’s 37th task with VA OI&T on the T4NG vehicle.
“As a long-standing partner to VA OI&T, FTC is deeply vested in the success of the mission,” commented FTC’s Chief Delivery Officer, Thomas Kenny. “We look forward to applying our security expertise to ensure that Veteran data remains safe, private, and used appropriately – today and into the future – through the support and application of policies at the enterprise level.”
