ICF International has won a potential four-year, $12 million contract to support a cloud-based system the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and partner agencies use to monitor disease patterns.
The company will provide data management, analytics and technical services for CDC’s BioSense electronic public health surveillance program, ICF said Wednesday.
BioSense is designed to help government health personnel track and address the risks associated with hazardous medical events.
“We are pleased to build upon our longstanding relationship with CDC and to work with DHIS to improve surveillance data quality, enhance BioSense technology, and expand BioSense coverage to build nationwide situational awareness capabilities with their federal, state and local partners, ” said Chris Bishop, ICF senior vice president.
ICF and CDC will also collaborate to redesign and standardize system requirements for the infrastructure.
