SRA International will provide support services for the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System under a three-year, $9 million contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The company said Wednesday it will support the NEDSS base system development and deployment and help shape practices for public health surveillance.

Kamal Narang, vice president of SRA’s health business, said the company aims to be involved in efforts to foster good health and to counter diseases.

CDC’s Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services manages NEDSS as it works to facilitate the exchange of health surveillance data and case notifications with the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System and public health departments.

NEDSS contains software applications built by CDC, systems built by state and local health agencies and electronic notifications created by private industry.

Fifty states, New York City, Washington D.C. and select U.S. territories send notifications to the NNDSS system via NEDSS.
