Success Story

Reducing Risks to both Contractor and Federal Customer

Challenge

A prime contractor received limited contract funding to pay their subcontractor to install security software licenses, creating undue risk for the prime contractor and Prime.

Solution

Streamline drafted a letter to the contracting officer that stated concern about a potential security breach that increased risk to the Federal customer’s mission.

Result

The Federal customer agreed. Funding was issued within 2 business days and the Government mitigated serious, unacceptable mission risk, which also enhanced the contractor’s reputation.
