Fairfax, Va.-based ICF International, a provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, announced Oct. 7 that it has been awarded a contract by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support biomedical and clinical information services.
The single-award blanket purchase agreement (BPA), a re-compete contract, has a ceiling of $100 million and a term of five years.
“We are proud to be selected to continue our support to NIH,” Matthew Perry, senior vice president for ICF International, said in a statement. “This award highlights ICF’s strength to blend our strong health subject matter expertise with innovative technology support to provide engaging information services that provide NIH and HHS clients with high-quality and highly efficient solutions.”
“ICF has a long and successful history supporting U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and NIH programs through both strong subject matter expertise and the innovative use of information technology,” ICF International Executive Vice President Ellen Glover said. “We are committed to employing the right combination of systems, services, personnel and management agility to address the dynamic needs of NLM, NCI, NHLBI, NCATS as well as other NIH partner agencies and to assist them in achieving their goals.”
Under this agreement, ICF will continue to support NIH in a wide range of areas including biomedical, health and disaster information management services, such as data collection and analysis, information dissemination and outreach initiatives for multiple NIH Institutes and Centers, including the National Library of Medicine (NLM), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) and other NIH partner agencies within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
ICF will also support programs for federal health initiatives related to HIV/AIDS, genetics, cancer, rare diseases, clinical trials and more.
