ICF International (NASDAQ: ICFI) will continue to help the National Institutes of Health manage a facility that monitors federal granting activities under a $72 million re-compete contract.
The five-year agreement is meant to support the agency’s operation of the Electronic Research Administration, which reviews and implements about 190, 000 grants worth some $30 billion annually, ICF said Tuesday.
Mary Whitley, a senior vice president at ICF, said her company has more than 10 years of experience in developing enterprise-level federal research grants management systems at NIH.
NIH-affiliated institutions, Department of Health and Human Services agencies and federal applicants from 24, 000 organizations around the world use the eRA.
“ICF is honored to continue working on NIH’s eRA program, supporting eRA’s customers and the vitally important mission of the NIH, ” said Lisa Pardue, an ICF vice president.
