WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - Enterprise Solutions Realized (ESR), a provider of mission-critical IT solutions to the federal government, announced that it is part of a team awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The multiple-award BPA supports the DHS Risk Management Framework (RMF) initiative. ESR will support prime contractor DSD Laboratories on projects under the award.

The BPA has a ceiling of $58 million and is for agencies to implement RMF for cyber security, as outlined by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800-37. The NIST program provides a framework for improving information security and risk management processes. Services under the BPA include security categorization, security control section and implementation, security control assessment, information system authorization, and security control monitoring. The BPA can be used by any DHS agency as well as by state, local, and tribal homeland security agencies.

Dennis Christmas, CEO of ESR, stated, "ESR is currently on contract at the Transportation Security Administration and at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and this latest BPA further expands our relationship with DHS and our support of its mission. ESR looks forward to working closely with DSD Labs as the team supports risk management across federal, state, local, and tribal homeland security agencies. As a quality supplier of IT solutions to DHS, we anticipate continued success as our team assists implementation of the DHS RMF."
