Global consulting and digital services provider ICF has been awarded a new task order by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide emerging technology and design acceleration support services.
The task order was awarded under the Alliant 2 Governmentwide Acquisition Contract and has a value of $9 million over five years, including one 12-month base and four 12-month option periods.
ICF is to combine the latest investments in innovation management, human-centered design and rapid prototyping to help CDC in its mission of achieving better public health outcomes. ICF will work with CDC’s Office of the Chief Information Officer to develop a governed, repeatable framework to evaluate and implement emerging and modern technologies across CDC public health programs.
Once adopted, the new framework will help OCIO pinpoint underlying issues and present the most promising, pragmatic solutions current technology can offer, said Mark Lee, ICF senior vice president and public sector lead.
“We are excited to bring our extensive experience in rapid prototyping to support OCIO’s mission of putting public health science into action through IT innovation and modernization,” he added.
