Vienna, VA (PRWEB) July 25, 2007
The Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded its Advanced Concepts Exploration and Planning (ACEP) contract to Flatirons Solutions. ACEP is a broadly-defined, enterprise-level, task order contract, and includes technical task areas such as Enterprise Architecture, Information Systems Security Engineering, Process Improvement, and Advanced Concepts Demonstrations. The contract is valued at $15 million over five years.
Flatirons' initial efforts will focus on the development and operationalization of the FAA's Enterprise Architecture, which is the foundation of the FAA's IT portfolio management and investment decision-making. The FAA's 2007 IT investment portfolio is $1.6 billion. The Enterprise Architecture will serve as a road map towards improving the interoperability, integration, and security of administrative systems, and support agency-wide IT portfolio management throughout the investment life cycle. Future work will include analysis, experimentation, prototyping, demonstration, and selection of new enterprise-wide concepts and technologies for the FAA.
"Flatirons looks forward to expanding its scope of services to the FAA," said Mary Pritchard, President. "We have enjoyed a long-term relationship with the Air Traffic Organization (ATO) developing next generation systems and technologies; working with the Office of the CIO will provide new opportunities to support the FAA at an enterprise level."
