Aretec, Inc. announced it has been awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to support the Securities Exchange Commission’s National Exam Analytics Tool (NEAT) program. NEAT supports compliance inspections and registrant examinations by providing examiners with enhanced analytic capacities to better scrutinize registrant data.
Work under this BPA, a firm fixed price call order-based award, will allow the company to continue more than two years of development and engineering support for this customer and the mission. The contract has a 12-month base plus four option years and was awarded in the third quarter of this year.
Aretec will continue its work in developing and integrating expanded functions within NEAT that provide examiners with enhanced application performance to improve usability and throughput; enhanced reporting functionality and performance; enhanced data-sharing capabilities across the examiner community; and application mobility improvements.
“Our application development knowledge, combined with insight into advanced programming and development initiatives has produced real-time improvements in the functionality of the NEAT tool,” said Aretec President Roby Luna. “As a result, we have been able to increase the analytic capabilities of the examiners across the organization.”
