GSA is entering the next phase for the program titled, “Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services” (HACS) program or referred to as “HACS Modernization”. GSA is looking for feedback from experts in the cybersecurity services market to help GSA further advance their current array of HACS offerings.
The goal is to improve GSA’s cybersecurity acquisition solutions to help drive more use by agencies, but also to achieve improved outcomes and safer IT systems for use in federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments.
To that end, the team at GSA is working to make it easier for industry to provide feedback. The agency released two HACS “Requests for Information” (RFI) documents on May 21, 2018. One RFI is for agencies but the other RFI is for industry partners.
GSA will be holding a stakeholder event on June 18, 2018 at GSA headquarters in Washington D.C. to discuss the HACS program’s past, present, and future. GSA wants stakeholders to discuss today’s cybersecurity landscape and how they think that GSA’s current services are working. They also want to know where GSA can improve services for the future, and the best ways for the agency to enhance delivery of services to agencies.
Several speakers from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and GSA’s Office of IT Category, and GSA’s Office of Small Business Utilization (OSBU) will be featured at the June event.
