ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI) won a multiple-award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to support CDC Information Management Services (CIMS).
The contract holds a total potential value of $4 billion for ICF. The term includes two base years and four two-year options, for a total of up to 10 years.
The firm will look to help the “CDC in planning and implementing health informatics and IT; performing management support; and re-engineering surveillance, epidemiology, and programmatic approaches. To reach those goals, ICF will develop disease surveillance and program data collection systems; conduct data analysis and decision support; support grant awards and grants management activities; and assess new technologies for data gathering, compilation, and analysis.”
With the deal, CDC is aiming to consolidate all IT, management consulting, and technology infrastructure activities for the next decade. ICF did not pursue the infrastructure domain.
“This contract, one of several recent contracts ICF has won to support CDC, recognizes ICF’s capability in providing full-service health applications and is another example of how ICF is able to take advisory expertise and move it across the spectrum of implementation and evaluation services, ” said Sudhakar Kesavan, chairman and CEO for ICF International.
