FCW : May 30, 2014
May 30, 2014 FCW.COM 7 CIOs and other federal managers can expect to get better-focused, cost- effective training packages for their employees under a memo of under- standing between the Of ce of Per- sonnel Management and the General Services Administration, according to GSA Administrator Dan Tangherlini and OPM Director Katherine Archuleta. The two agencies will manage the solicitation and award of a new stra- tegically sourced, multiple-award con- tract vehicle that will support OPM s Training and Management Assistance (TMA) program. Tangherlini said the goal is to col- lapse the time it takes a CIO to iden- tify a skills gap and get training for his or her employees to address the gap. Archuleta said better-focused training regimens will result from the agreement. The new arrangement, formed in collaboration with the interagency Strategic Sourcing Leadership Council, will support the largest government- wide, strategically sourced solution for staf ng and training services. OPM will continue to offer train- ing and management products but will capitalize on GSA s know-how in providing governmentwide cost sav- ings and ef ciencies. OPM said it will continue to provide staf ng and train- ing solutions to agencies through its existing TMA contract. OPM and GSA plan to have the new contract in place in scal 2015. The announcement comes almost a year after OPM canceled what was intended to be the successor to TMA --- the Customized Human Resources Solutions Services plan. OPM of cials said in February that they would not pursue that proposal. --- Mark Rockwell GSA, OPM team up to tackle training mobile devices are supported by the VA, which expects the number to exceed 100,000 by 2018 13,532 Trending TANK The Energy Department has issued procurement guidelines for building cybersecurity protections into the design and manufacturing of energy delivery systems. The Cybersecurity Procurement Language for Energy Delivery Systems focuses on perceived vulnerabilities in the industry s procurement pro- cess, including in software use and the account management of energy delivery systems. The latter category includes supervisory control and data acquisition systems and other automa- tion tools that are becoming the norm as utilities modernize their grids. Many of those energy delivery systems "are con gured with default accounts and passwords that are sometimes public- ly available," the new guidelines state. Defense and homeland security of cials have warned in recent years that the U.S. power grid is suscepti- ble to cyber and physical sabotage. In an October 2012 speech, then- Defense Secretary Leon Panetta cau- tioned that a nation-state or extremist group could "shut down the power grid across large parts of the country." A federal analysis found that knock- ing out just nine of the nation s 55,000 transmission substations could trigger a widespread blackout, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal last month. The new DOE guidelines are not binding but are intended as baseline principles from which procurement contracts can be written. DOE s Of ce of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability and the Department of Homeland Security s Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team helped produce the document. "As we deploy advanced technolo- gies to make the U.S. power grid more reliable and resilient, we must simulta- neously advance cybersecurity protec- tions," Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said in a statement. --- Sean Lyngaas DOE releases cyber procurement guidelines
