The General Services Administration (GSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have partnered to provide federal agencies with a Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Program (CDM) in order to safeguard, secure, and strengthen cyberspace and security of federal agency networks.  With this partnership a possible new Special Item Number (SIN) could be issued under GSA’s schedule 70.

As described in the sources sought, “The CDM Program is a federal funded program designed to provide a new approach to protecting the cyber infrastructure of the civilian .gov network environment.  The CDM Program moves away from historical compliance reporting toward combating threats to our nations networks on a real-time basis, where tools are gathering system attributes to determine the current state of the network.

Phase 1: “What is on the network?”
Phase 2: “Who is on the network?”
Bound:    “How is the network protected?”
Phase 3:  “What is happening on the network?”

A sources sought was issued via GSA in federal business opportunities (FBO) on March 22, 2017 and to close on April 5, 2017.  To participate you may view the sources sought here.
