RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2016) - Govplace, a leading solutions provider for the public sector, will provide key services as a subcontractor to ManTech for a strategic task order awarded by the General Services Administration on behalf of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide cybersecurity and cloud solutions to the federal government.

Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) and Continuous Monitoring as a Service (CMaaS) for Group F Phases 1 and 2 Implementation, was awarded under the GSA Alliant Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) vehicle. Govplace and prime contractor, ManTech, will deliver all of CDM Phase 1 and 2 to 44 federal agencies. This will be accomplished through a private, Government only, Shared Services platform utilizing a FedRAMP Moderate authorized Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) public cloud offering. The entire offering will then be authorized by DHS utilizing the recently released FedRAMP High baseline security controls and FedRAMP security policies to obtain an Agency sponsored authorization. As part of the award, Govplace will architect and deliver the shared services platform, from which ManTech will deliver the full solution to the agencies. The task order is valued at $25 million, with a period of performance of 1 base year, and 2 option years.
