ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Avineon, Inc., a successful provider of information technology, geospatial, and engineering support services, today announced that the company has been awarded a Treasury Information Processing Support Services-4 (TIPSS-4) Small Business (SB) contract to provide systems support to the Internal Revenue Service and other Department of Treasury bureaus.
The IRS competed its first Management/Business Operations Support Services (MBOSS) and Cyber Security suite of indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts, called TIPSS-4 SB, which have a 10-year period of performance (one base-year and nine one-year options) and a program ceiling of $2 billion. These contracts are the primary procurement vehicles for technology-related services within the Internal Revenue Service and other Treasury bureaus.
Thirty-six companies were selected as prime contractors on this multiple award contract vehicle among the industry's best small business competitors. They will be providing support across functional areas which will require high-level project management skills and tools for managing, tracking, reporting, and transitioning on large-scale systems, and maintaining configuration management controls and all aspects of systems security as it relates to Government practices, policies, and procedures, such as risk analyses and the development of recommendations and implementation, and plans for new procedures and changes to existing systems.
The TIPSS-4 SB contract is designed to provide a full range of information processing support services for project and program level support and cyber security related services that maybe required across virtually all software languages and hardware platforms throughout the period of performance of the contract. As one of the selections, Avineon leads the industry in providing technology support services.
"Avineon is excited to continue working with the IRS," said President and CEO Karlu Rambhala. "We have been a successful TIPSS-3 prime contractor since 2005. With a TIPSS-4 SB award in both the MBOSS and cyber security functional areas and our previous award of a TIPSS-4 Information Technology Services (ITS) unrestricted contract, Avineon is well-positioned to continue delivering high quality services to this valued customer, just as we have done under TIPSS-3."
