Technology & Management Services, a provider of professional services, has won a two-year $8.2 million contract from the US Department of Homeland Security to protect the nation’s critical infrastructure, IT, and communications infrastructure.
TMS, an arm of National Interest Security (NISC), provides analytical, management, and technical services primarily to the US government. TMS uses IT to provide integrated systems to meet client needs. Its clients include US Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Labor, Health & Human Services, Oak Ridge Associated Universities, Department of Agriculture and Department of Interior.
The present contract is to support the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) in business operations and planning. NPPD has two responsibilities – Infrastructure Protection (IP) and Cyber Security and Communications (CS&C).
IP identifies threats, consequences, and vulnerabilities, as well as mitigation strategies, for the nation’s critical infrastructure physical or virtual assets in areas such as energy, agriculture, and industries whose damage or destruction would have serious national consequences.

We will dedicate all resources necessary to assist NPPD in reaching their goals and sustaining the trend toward greater efficiency and responsiveness.
