4 Firms Awarded $139M HHS IT Engineering BPA

The Department of Health and Human Services has awarded four companies spots on a potential $139 million blanket purchase agreement for information technology engineering services.

CSRA (NYSE: CSRA), Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), ManTech International (Nasdaq: MANT) and Salient CRGT are the awardees on HHS’ third Next Generation Information Technology Services BPA, the department announced Thursday.

Work will encompass engineering support in various IT areas such as unified communications and collaboration, email-as-a-service and enterprise mobile management.

Leidos secured the first task order to provide engineering expertise in efforts to help HHS staff and operating divisions manage the performance of their infrastructure assets and avoid obsolescence.

This latest NGITS agreement comes two weeks after the department’s award of the $207 million operations services BPA to six contractors that also include CSRA and Leidos as awardees.

HHS said it intends to issue a separate program management integration BPA later this year.
