NTT DATA awarded contract with U.S. Customs and Border Protection

PLANO, TXDecember 20, 2016NTT DATA, Inc. today announced the company has been awarded a contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CBP). During the five-year, $85 million  contract, NTT DATA will provide CBP’s Office of Acquisition (OA), formerly known as the Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition, with a comprehensive Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) program, covering the entire system lifecycle and the OA enterprise.

 

CBP processes more than one million passengers and pedestrians, 72,000 truck, rail and sea containers and more than 280,000 incoming privately owned vehicles—providing the necessary checks and balances for the systems supporting this volume of entries is mission critical to protecting our nation. On this contract, NTT DATA will independently verify and validate that products and systems for border management comply with CBP requirements, and ensure effective and efficient program management.

“We’re looking forward to providing OA with long-term solutions to help secure our nation’s borders. This contract will enable our federal team to apply technology-forward solutions to help government,” said Tim Conway, U.S. Public Sector President for NTT DATA.

 

Since 2008, NTT DATA has provided IV&V services to OA. During that time, NTT DATA introduced several innovative cost and time saving measures, demonstrating decisively a strong commitment to helping CBP.
