Electrosoft to Provide Cybersecurity Support Services to US Transportation Command

The U.S. Transportation Command has awarded Electrosoft Services a four-year, $21 million prime contract for IT support services.

Under the TRANSCOM Senior Information Security Officer support services contract, Electrosoft will help the combatant command in securing cyber resilience for its technology and logistics mission environment. Services will include risk management framework support, cybersecurity engineering, security controls evaluation, zero trust policy and governance and access control policy support.

Services will be provided at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. The contract has a one-month base period and four option years, Electrosoft said Tuesday.

The services will ensure that the combatant command will comply with the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Risk Management Framework and the Department of Defense’s Instruction 8510.01. The NIST RMF highlights seven steps to integrate security, privacy and cyber supply chain risk management into organizations’ system development lifecycle while DOD Instruction 8510.01 establishes a risk management framework for Pentagon systems and establishes policies and other necessary regulations to maintain the RMF.

TRANSCOM is responsible for military transportation operations across the land, sea and air domains. It manages the delivery of equipment, vehicles and personnel to different locations around the world.

Electrosoft offers cybersecurity; identity, credential and access management; enterprise IT; software solutions and integration, and program management services to clients in the defense and federal civilian sectors. It is headquartered in Reston, Virginia.
