HP Enterprise Services announced this week that it has been selected by the National Institutes of Health Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC) to provide technology services to federal agencies under the Chief Information Officer – Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) contract.
Under the contract, worth as much as $20 billion over the next decade across all awardees, HP and its team of small-business partners can compete for individual task orders from federal agencies to provide a wide range of services.
With federal agencies facing new challenges in the deployment of large-scale IT programs, CIO-SP3 offers an unprecedented breadth of information technology support of the Federal Enterprise Architecture, the Federal Health Architecture and the Department of Defense (DoD) Enterprise Architecture.
“Healthcare reform is a top national priority that results in a significant demand to employ IT to support rapidly changing industry needs,” said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. “HP, which founded the healthcare IT services industry more than 45 years ago and continues to focus on the healthcare segment today, is uniquely qualified to provide federal agencies with technical expertise across all ten CIO-SP3 task areas.”
