An Alaska Native Corporation (ANC) and SBA certified 8(a) business has won a contract to protect government information and immediately respond to detected incidents.
Tuvli, an Akima subsidiary, will provide the U.S. Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) with cybersecurity services and monitoring.
The contract has a 5-year period of performance and a total contract value of approximately $13.9 million, if all options are exercised.
“The award demonstrates the confidence that the Bureau of Indian Affairs has in Akima to protect government information and rapidly address detected vulnerabilities,” said Juvy McCarthy, President of Akima’s Technology Solutions & Products Group. “We are dedicated to helping our customers pre-empt and thwart the most complex and evasive cyber threats.”
Working in support of BIA, the Tuvli team will provide cybersecurity monitoring to rapidly detect incidents, conduct vulnerability analysis, identify weaknesses, analyze logs, track incidents, generate after action reports, and restore IT operations after an incident. Specific responsibilities include Computer Network Defense (CND) monitoring, Cyber Incident Response Team (CSIRT), and Cyber Security Systems Engineering and Integration (CSSE&I).
Tuvli offers cybersecurity, systems engineering, IT, information assurance, program support and project management support. Tuvli is housed under Akima, a global enterprise with more than 7,500 employees, and Akima is a subsidiary of NANA, an Alaska Native Corporation owned by more than 14,000 Iñupiat shareholders.
Akima’s core mission is to enable superior outcomes for customers’ missions while simultaneously creating a long-lived asset for NANA consistent with Iñupiat values.
In 2019, Washington Technology ranked Akima #38 amongst the top 100 government contractors.
