CTC Wins $1.8M FEMA Contract for ICAM Technology
Thursday, November 30, 2017 | Comments

The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), Cyber Security Division’s identity, credential and access management (ICAM) team awarded Concurrent Technologies Corp. (CTC) a one-year contract worth nearly $1.8 million to support a technology that CTC developed on previous FEMA contracts. The Accountability Tracking System (ATS) is a mobile, electronic validation system used to identify personnel during emergency response situations.

ATS — officially called the Federal (and Mutual Aid) Emergency Response Official Accountability Tracking System or F/ERO ATS — was first used on a large scale during the 2017 presidential inauguration, where it provided a validation capability to D.C. homeland security and emergency management agency personnel, enabling unescorted facility access. ATS was also used for the FEMA response to hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Alabama, as well as in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, where it tracked FEMA employees going on and off commercial and Navy ships deployed for disaster relief.

CTC is the prime contractor and will provide production, sustainment and integration support for ATS, as well as support for FEMA disaster deployment and credential issuing and logistics. The company began providing expertise on this technology in 2010. The contract runs through Sept. 14, 2018.

“We’re very happy to continue to support and optimize the system that we developed,” said Michael Glace, CTC adviser, information technology. “While the original software tracked personnel based on their credentials, we’re now able to track personnel, as well as equipment assigned to them and help direct them where they need to be. This technology can be used anywhere that accountability tracking is needed.”
