HHS awards $60M HSPD-12 end-to-end solution support task to Deloitte

G2X TAKE: Deloitte, a global consulting and advisory services firm and longtime partner to HHS, has been awarded a short term task with options that will provide for the uninterrupted and continuous support for HHS’ end-to-end solution for implementation and compliance with HSPD-12 and related requirements for cybersecurity, eGOV initiatives, and privacy. This task was awarded as a sole source action using the CIO-SP3 GWAC, with HHS citing concern that a failure to continue Deloitte support with this gap contract would endanger the assets, resources, Healthcare, and pandemic response activities that make up the HHS mission and business partners. 

A copy of the full justification document detailing the rationale for the sole source can be found here.  

Take Bytes

  • HHS has stated that “a current fully competitive solicitation for the next-generation FICAM solution is still in process, with an estimated award date of October 1, 2022. For that reason, the period of performance for this sole-source contract includes a six-month base and a 12-month option period, and an additional 12-month option period for possible transition time … the length of this contract action is in anticipation of the many starts-and-stops that PSC/ISBS has encountered in trying to stand up the currently delayed re-compete efforts.”
  • Deloitte is a known incumbent on this effort with HHS citing that Deloitte “developed and owns the Smart Card Management System (SCMS) that provides HSPD-12-compliant credentials and ICAM services throughout HHS, it is a managed service that HHS elected to use in 2009 with HHS ownership solely in the actual data and ancillary integration built transaction code. Deloitte is the sole provider with engineering access to this intellectual property and the proprietary knowledge to the inner workings of this system, and how it can be upgraded and modified without catastrophic cyber and physical vulnerability to the HHS mission.”
  • With a broad set of expertise and Prime access to dozens of key contract vehicles, Deloitte remains one of the primary players in the Federal Health sector, and they were named last year to the list of NXT UP firms poised to make big waves in the Federal sector in 2020 and for years to come. 
  • We should note that Deloitte Consulting Principal and IT Transformation leader Kerri Maloney was recently recognized as a 2020 FedHealthIT Women in Leadership Award Winner
