NIST is finally getting help with the National Vulnerability Database backlog

Maryland-based security firm Analygence has landed the job of helping the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) reduce mounting backlog of entries in the US National Vulnerability Database (NVD), an agency representative said Tuesday.

“I can confirm that Analygence, Inc. won a competitive task order for processing support for incoming CVEs for inclusion in the NVD. The base amount of that task order is $865,657,” NIST spokesman Rich Press said in an email. The contract, which took effect May 8, simply outlines that the firm will provide cybersecurity analysis and email support to the NIST.

The award is part of an five-year $125-million framework agreement (or indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, in US Federal government parlance) for Analygence and two other companies to provide support services to NIST.
