Interos Solutions has been contracted to support the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service (FAS), Office of Information Technology (IT) Category (ITC), IT Security Subcategory, Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) Vendor Risk Assessment (VRA) program. With repeated cyber intrusions into critical infrastructure systems, GSA is moving to create a well-defined, robust process to evaluate the known or potential risks vendors bring to the federal IT supply chain.

This SCRM VRA program will provide the FAS/ITC, IT Security Subcategory with risk research analysis and assessment about companies, federal contractors, and subcontractors through the analysis of public record, publicly available information, and commercially available data.

“Whether it’s counterfeit microchips or disgruntled employees, known or unknown vulnerabilities, every engagement potentially brings some risk to the federal supply chain,” said Interos CEO Jennifer Bisceglie. “Our robust capability to assess multiple tiers of vendors within the Federal IT supply chain will help GSA determine which vendors bring higher risk to the supply chain than others and prioritize mitigation activities.”

Interos Solutions is a leading expert on supply chain risk management (SCRM), business due diligence, and open source intelligence (OSINT).
