SKYEPOINT DECISIONS CLOSES OUT 2021 WITH A WIN
Dulles, VA – December 14, 2021 – SkyePoint Decisions, Inc. (SkyePoint) is thrilled to announce the receipt of a Task Order award from the Department of Education (DoED), Office of Federal Student Aid (FSA) to perform Cybersecurity Risk Management and Compliance. SkyePoint was largely selected due to our ability to enhance and automate the Authority-to-Operate (ATO) and Risk Management Framework (RMF) processes for FSA. The Office of Federal Student Aid solicited the task order through their Cybersecurity and Privacy Support Systems (CPSS) contract, a GSA HACS SIN Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). The value of the task order award is $52M over a 5-year period of performance which started on December 6, 2021.
SkyePoint will provide assessment, collection, analysis, and review support in evaluating the cybersecurity risk for major enterprise information systems, working in collaboration with FSA’s Enterprise Cybersecurity Group (ESG). This includes engineering and analysis for System Security Authorization (SA) Independent Assessments, System Security Authorization (SSA) Support, Annual Control Tests, Executing the Ongoing Security Authorization (OSA) Program, Developing Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&Ms), Independent Verification and Validation, Audit Support, and Documentation and Policy Support. We directly support the FSA Chief Information Security Officer’s (CISO) mission in maintaining a cybersecurity program based upon the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) for complying with and assessing the security posture of FSA information systems, including partner and other third-party entities.
“This is a groundbreaking moment for SkyePoint as this is our largest competitive prime contract win in the history of the company, and our first supporting the Department of Education.
