NTT DATA’s secure, native application helps empower organizations and workers as they meet new federal mandates

McLean, Va. – October 4, 2021 – NTT DATA, a digital business and IT services leader, today announced the launch of a Smart Back to Work Application designed to help government organizations and private employers comply with vaccine mandates. The Biden Administration recently announced multiple initiatives to strengthen safety protocols across the federal government and private sector, including issuing two executive orders requiring vaccinations for federal employees and many federal contractors.

Additionally, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is developing a rule that will require private sector employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis before coming to work. With approximately 9.1 million federal government workers, complying with this recent executive order will require advanced data, analytics and the ability to seamlessly enable workers and employers to implement safety protocols required by these mandates.

NTT DATA’s Smart Back to Work Application is easily accessible from a mobile phone, tablet or computer. Within a few minutes employees can upload proof of vaccination, attest to their vaccination status, or upload COVID-19 test results—effortlessly and quickly.

“In times of crisis, technology companies have to be nimble to respond to changing client needs and priorities,” said Tim Conway, Group President, Public Sector, NTT DATA. “NTT DATA’s Smart Back to Work Application enables government entities and private sector businesses to seamlessly track status and compliance with requirements, provides peace of mind and remove the complexity for all.”

Through a convenient dashboard, administrators can assess compliance securely and expeditiously. The application has been used effectively to help test for and manage COVID-19 exposure at colleges and universities. The expanded version of the application builds on successful implementations and allows flexibility for future changes based on developments in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Colorado State University at Pueblo was recently awarded the 2021 Excellence and Innovation Award for Campus Pandemic Response from the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, leveraging NTT DATA’s COVID-19 application as a key component of their effort. The application allows users to conduct daily self-assessment and health monitoring for students and employees as well as advanced reporting of a robust on-campus testing program administered by Spartan Medical.

The secure Smart Back to Work Application uses a tool from AWS Premier Consulting Partner, Cloudticity to manage real-time compliance with the technical requirements of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800-53, NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) and HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) and HIPAA/HITECH Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs). The application is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and available in AWS GovCloud for public sector clients.
