Software that Assesses Security Risks to Transportation Networks
The TSA wants a tool that will assess risks against transportation networks:
"The tool will assist in prioritization of security measures based on their risk reduction potential," said the statement of work accompanying TSA's formal solicitation, which was posted April 18.
The software tool would help TSA gather and organize information about specific transport modes and assist agency officials to make risk management decisions.
The contract, which will be issued by TSA's office of operational process and technology, envisions a one-year base period plus four one-year options. The chosen vendor will be expected to install the software, troubleshoot any hardware or software problems, consult on building risk assessment modules, attend classified intelligence meetings at TSA headquarters and maintain the software.
I don't think you have to be very good to qualify here. This automated system put Boise, ID, on the top of its list of most vulnerable cities. The bar isn't very high here; I'm just saying.
