The Federal Aviation Administration has postponed plans to seek a new cybersecurity services provider while the agency responds to a cyberattack, according to contracting documents.
The FAA is extending the contract of SRA International to support the agency’s Security Operations Center through February 2016. Back in 2008, SRA won a $67 million contract to run the center, which protects the overall critical information systems at the Department of Transportation from infiltration and disruption. Under its existing contract, SRA’s cyber work can continue via option periods through this July. A new bridge contract will allow work to continue through February 2016.
