G2X TAKE: Beating out two other bidders, By Light, a leading provider of IT, cloud, cyber and infrastructure solutions, and one of the original SDVOSB Prime awardees on T4, has been awarded a 5-year task to support IAM, a suite of VA hosted enterprise services.
Identity Services (IdS) provide the VA business lines a service that: uniquely identifies all persons of interest; enables assignment of universal VA identifiers to service members; and facilitates data sharing between VA Lines of Business (LOB’s) and external partners.
Access Services (AcS) provide VA business lines a service that: streamlines the granting and removing of electronic permissions to access VA technology systems, resources and data; ensures only authorized users are granted access; supports role-based/attribute-based and Single Sign-On (SSO) access; allows beneficiaries to use electronic or digital signatures; and allows Veterans to receive a VA credential without having to appear at a VA facility.
This task was competed using the VA T4NG IDIQ. An RFI with a draft PWS can be found here.
- Led by Senior VP for Federal Healthcare, Lucy Donahue; VP, Mike Farahbakhshian; and others, this is just the latest in a string of recent Prime awards we have seen go to By Light at VA, to include a series of awards to support VA’s high-profile MyHealtheVet portal; a task to support the VetPro Software Application; one to provide PIV Online Scheduling Support services; another to provide VA with identity verification maintenance support; and a recent $36M award to consolidate existing maintenance contracts at all NEC OEM Call Control Server Voice Systems sites.
- By Light was identified as one of the Federal Health consulting firms creating a BUZZ.
- Since being acquired in 2017 by Sagewind Capital, a private equity firm, By Light has been busy on the M&A front, acquiring several firms to bolster their capabilities and expanding their footprint. This includes last month’s acquisition of Cyber solutions and training specialist, Metova; the addition of software, cybersecurity, systems engineering and managed services provider, Phacil, Inc.; and a 2018 acquisition of IT, Cyber Solutions and Engineering Service Provider, Axom Technologies.
- By Light was awarded a Prime Contract under GSA’s $50B Government-wide Alliant 2 Contract in 2018.
