Several technology services contractors and consulting firms have won spots on a potential five-year, $49M contract to provide the Department of Health and Human Services’ program support center with artificial intelligence and automation tools designed to facilitate operations, the Washington Business Journal reported Thursday.

More than 50 awardees will vie for task orders to supply AI, machine learning, blockchain, robotic process automation and other technology platforms to PSC under the Intelligent Automation/Artificial Intelligence program.
