Parsons to Assess Cyber Vulnerabilities Under $170M DTRA Task Order

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency has awarded Parsons a potential five-year, $170 million task order to conduct vulnerability assessments, technical support projects and design reviews under the Assessments, Exercises, Modeling and Simulation Support indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity multiple-award contract.

The IDIQ contract has a maximum value of $850 million. Parsons was one of five firms to earn spots on the deal.

The company is also expected to support programs of DTRA’s Nuclear Enterprise Directorate. DTRA is a Department of Defense agency responsible for curbing the use of weapons of mass destruction.

According to a press release, Parsons has supported the agency’s efforts for more than two decades. The company is said to provide mission assurance assessments and expertise in security operations, emergency management, electromagnetic protection and various other areas.

Jon Moretta, president of engineered systems, added that his organization enables customers to tackle a variety of cyber threats and vulnerabilities, Parsons said Wednesday.
