IT-CNP, Inc. has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to provide Next Generation IT Services (NGITS) application hosting, FedRAMP certified cloud, and associated managed services.
The award will enable HHS stakeholders to rapidly access application hosting and cloud migration resources while benefiting from pre-negotiated BPA discounts and cost savings associated with utilizing the full spectrum of optimized services available through IT-CNP’s GSA IT Schedule 70.
IT-CNP’s scope of support services under this BPA includes design, development and deployment of hosting solutions, application management, configuration management, patch management, HHS security compliance management, continuous monitoring, vulnerability identification and remediation, managed backup, disaster recovery, and the use of best practice technologies and mature processes to minimize cost while maximizing availability, reliability, and information security.
