The Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Service team worked with the Office of Management & Budget, Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies developing and submitting a market research survey to Networx contractors to document their understanding of and readiness to support the Trusted Internet Connection initiative. GSA analyzed feedback and compiled a report describing potential support capabilities, impacts and issues clearly defining the approach proposed by each carrier. The team subsequently engineered solutions, including a proposed TIC architecture. By making these capabilities available to federal agencies through the NETWORX contract vehicle, the team's work improved the federal government's network security posture. Their leadership benefits GSA, OMB, federal agency customers and the taxpayer by providing this capability at the lowest possible cost through collaboration, aggregation of requirements and competition in the marketplace.
