HP Awarded National Institutes of Health Contract

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP Enterprise Services today announced it has been selected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' 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, HP and its team of small-business partners can compete for individual task orders from federal agencies to provide a wide range of services that support federal IT architectures, including IT services for biomedical research, health sciences and healthcare, imaging, IT operations and maintenance, integration services, and software development.
With federal agencies facing new challenges in the deployment of large-scale IT programs, CIO-SP3 offers an unprecedented breadth of IT in support of the Federal Enterprise Architecture, the Federal Health Architecture and the Department of Defense (DoD) Enterprise Architecture. Federal civilian and DoD agencies will use this contract to quickly and efficiently satisfy new and emerging IT requirements, including but not limited to data-center consolidation, cloud computing, health IT, mobility and cybersecurity.

CIO-SP3 is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) government-wide acquisition contract with a $20 billion ceiling across all awardees over the next 10 years.

“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.”
