Report: OPM to Award Contract for Clearance Files Breach by Aug. 14

US office of personnel managementThe Office of Personnel Management plans to award a contract by mid-August for notification and identity protection services that the agency plans to provide people affected by the security clearance files breach, Nextgov reported Wednesday.

Kaveh Waddell writes that OPM is working with the Defense Department to secure a contractor after the previous award to CSID for the same services to federal employees whose personnel records were compromised.

According to the report, the General Services Administration issued a request for information last week that indicated the potential contract award to be on Aug. 14.

GSA asked interested vendors to submit their responses Tuesday, including details on their past work on data breach response and capability to meet the scale of services needed for the upcoming contract, Waddell reports.

The report said the RFI did not state the length of coverage for the services, even as lawmakers are calling for lifetime identity protection rather than the three years OPM originally offered.
