The other transaction agreement for the delivery of enterprise information technology application development services has a one-year base period and four option years, Peraton said Tuesday.
The OTA requires Peraton to create a modernized, central platform designed to transform the background investigation process. Services are under the direction of DCSA’s National Background Investigation Services Program Management Office.
Contract work builds on the completion of a prototype of a security enterprise architecture Perspecta built to manage all background investigations and security clearance adjudications involving DSCA. In addition, it includes Trusted Workforce 2.0, the newly established requirement for continuous vetting.
“Federal agencies need a steady population of cleared and trusted workers to handle their most sensitive functions. With nearly 20,000 of our employees holding clearances, we know the importance of having a modern system that balances efficiency, security and speed so that federal employees and contractors can focus on protecting the nation,” commented Jeff Bohling, president of Peraton’s Defense Solutions sector.
Peraton will support the NBIS system by incorporating technologies and processes such as zero-trust security, microservices architecture, cloud elasticity, server-less computing and low code development.
The work will be executed mainly in the greater Washington region and Fort Meade.
