FAIRFAX, Va., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Salient Federal Solutions, Inc. (Salient), a leading provider of information technology, engineering, and intelligence analytic services to agencies in the intelligence, defense, homeland security, cyber security, and federal civilian markets, today announced the award of a new contract by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) with a six month base and four one year option years valued at $5.7 million. The FEC is the U.S. independent regulatory agency created to administer and enforce the statute that governs the financing of federal elections with a mission to disclose campaign finance information, to enforce the provisions of the law such as the limits and prohibitions on contributions, and to oversee the public funding of Presidential elections.
Under the new contract, Salient will provide software engineering services, operations and maintenance for FEC's Electronic Filing (EF) System. The EF System software enables filers to record and track information required for reporting to the Commission and to securely submit this data electronically. Ultimately, it allows the FEC to review statements and financial reports filed by political committees participating in Federal elections, provide assistance and guidance to the committees to properly file their reports, and to take appropriate action to ensure compliance. The new award also includes Managed Services Infrastructure; Electronic Filing and Disclosure Systems Operations and Maintenance; and help desk for users of the Electronic Filing Office (EFO).
"We look forward to building on the longstanding and successful working relationship we have had with the FEC. We appreciate the agency's confidence in our abilities to provide improved software, operations and maintenance that will help their systems become more efficient and more effective for their users," says Brad Antle, CEO of Salient. "This is also a great opportunity for Salient to implement some of its most sophisticated solutions to help the FEC achieve their goals of tomorrow, today, while reducing maintenance costs."
Salient has served the FEC for the past 10 years in designing, building, deploying and operating several large key applications and critical systems used by the Office of Information Technology (OIT) through its FEC IT Support contract. Through this direct and relevant experience, Salient will effectively set application standards for FEC, eliminating redundancy, and allowing for processes that are more streamlined.
