June 5, 2012 – Bethesda, MD – eMentum, a technical and management consultancy for the federal government, today announced that it has been awarded a prime five-year contract with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Identity Management Services Program (IDMS). Under the terms of the contract, bid in the full and open category, eMentum’s responsibilities will encompass enterprise architecture, systems design, application engineering, logical access control implementations, and physical access control implementations, as well as program and project management support across the agency.
“We are once again delighted to be entrusted to lead DOJ’s Identity, Credentialing, and Access Management Program, as we have from its inception,” said eMentum President and CEO, Carolyn Merek. ” Our federal identity management practitioners provide experience and innovation to succeed in a very complex environment of change across the Federal government where missions and security concerns drive mandates and budgets dictate technology and the speed of change.”
The contract continues the long-standing partnership between the Bethesda-based, woman-owned small business and agency to increase the security of DOJ’s people, information, systems and facilities. eMentum is expanding their role in supporting the design and development of a shared IT infrastructure, to address the costly and inefficient redundancy of services provided by DOJ’s highly federated Components. In addition, eMentum currently provides DOJ with technological subject-matter expertise across the entire cybersecurity spectrum on projects for DOJ’s Chief Information Officer and with all 42 DOJ Components.
“eMentum has a holistic understanding of the ways E-Gov, FICAM, NSTIC, cloud security, data center consolidation, and other technology initiatives are transforming identity management “, said Robert Randa, eMentum Senior Director and IDMS Engagement Lead. ” We give DOJ the advantage of an identity-based view of security that transcends the organizational, operational, physical, and cyber boundaries that have defined access control until now.”
In addition, eMentum has teamed up with three long-time collaborators:
- Accenture global management consulting, technology, and managed services company that assists Federal agencies in achieving their missions while reducing costs and improving service delivery.
- BruckEdwards specializes in helping clients develop, enhance, and manage their decision-making and operations through intelligent application of leading-edge technologies and processes.
- SyncroCyber designs and delivers digital identity, credentialing, and access management solutions across the physical and logical domains.
