KBRwyle has been awarded a $71 million contract to provide cyber security services for the US Defense Health Agency (DHA).

The Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic awarded this three-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee task order under the SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-E) contract. KBRwyle has held a seat on SeaPort-E since 2005.

KBRwyle will assist SSC Atlantic with its cyber security and risk management framework (RMF) initiatives and provide support to the DHA Assessment and Authorization (A&A) Division. This work will help DHA provide secure healthcare to US Air Force, Army, and Navy warfighters and their families.

Under this task order, the Company will provide cyber security A&A support including ensuring DHA IT is compliant with information assurance (IA) directives and processes; preparing and reviewing RMF packages, supporting IA test procedure standardisation, and performing risk assessments.

KBRwyle will carry out a range of other health IT efforts, such as program management, security controls, privacy requirements, and warranty management support. It will also provide critical cyber security tools, and maintain and enhance DHA’s web-based platform for data management.

Byron Bright, President, KBR Government Services US, said: “KBRwyle has delivered cutting-edge cyber security solutions to DHA since its inception.

“We will continue to work side by side with DHA as it delivers integrated, affordable and high quality health services to U.S. military members and their loved ones.”
