Through a new task order for security services, the Health and Human Services Department has kicked off an effort to consolidate many IT services across its bureaus. The department this month signed a five-year task order with Internet Security Systems Inc. of Atlanta for intrusion detection software, servers and vulnerability scanning services for all 12 of its bureaus.

    "Fifteen months ago, the secretary challenged us in the IT community to develop an IT plan for HHS with explicit goals and consolidation" plans, said Jim Seligman, CIO for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and one of the project managers for IT consolidation at HHS.

    At HHS, each bureau had created its own security program and set up its own systems and applications--some weaker than others, Seligman said. The idea is to create a more standardized security approach, he said.
