Paradigm Solutions has been awarded a $49 million blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to provide comprehensive information technology and cyber security for Disaster Recovery Software Solutions within DoD.

"We are excited about our latest prime contract award and the opportunity to safeguard yet another facet of the DoD mission," said Peter LaMontagne, CEO of Paradigm, in a release Thursday. "We are currently supporting OpsPlanner deployments in other Federal agencies and we look forward to bringing this experience to DoD customers."

Paradigm's OpsPlanner software tool is already deployed in other agencies and allows users to collaborate, create, plan, and manage business recovery, crisis management, and automated emergency notification plans online.

The contract is open to all departments within DoD pending a letter of authorization.

Agencies have no guaranteed minimum value on contracts and cannot exceed the $49 million limit.
