Parsons Corporation has been awarded a task order to provide testing solutions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities across the United States. The award includes a one-year base and two one-year option periods, for a potential total value, including surge capacity, of more than $100 million. This task order was issued under the DHS COVID-19 Testing Solutions IDIQ, on which Parsons was awarded a contract in November of 2020.
Parsons will supply emergency use authorized, portable, rapid molecular and rapid antigen test kits to DHS, as well as provide logistics, coordination, and training support as part of this important testing effort. Parsons will leverage its DetectWise™ solution to enable reliable and timely supply of test kits as well as effective logistics and coordination support and visualization capabilities.
Parsons’ DetectWise™ solution, part of the company’s growing biosurveillance portfolio, offers a one-stop-shop for COVID-19 testing, attestation, credentialing, and data management, for any agency or business that needs to comply with workforce regulations or manage facility, event, or travel safety for crowds. Users can complete self-attestations, upload vaccination status, and access and integrate COVID-19 test results in real-time. The software makes it possible to easily manage this data, and issue access credentials as needed for facility or event access.
The platform is used by major event producers, Fortune 500 companies, nursing homes, hospitals, airports, and state and local governments to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
