ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, was recently awarded one new task order and one re-compete task order by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Both task orders were issued under the CDC Information Management Services (CIMS) contract. They have a combined value of $21.9 million.
The first agreement, a new task order with the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention, Division of HIV and AIDS Prevention, has a value of $6.9 million and a term of five years, including one 10-month base and eight six-month options. ICF will provide operations and maintenance and technical support for the Enhanced HIV/AIDS Reporting System (eHARS), CDC’s surveillance system for reporting and monitoring the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States. The firm’s staff brings a combined 8+ years of experience with eHARS, including expertise in requirements analysis and management, software development, testing, user support and system architecture.
The second agreement, a re-compete task order with the Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services, has a value of $15.1 million and a term of 3.5 years, including one six-month base and three one-year options. ICF will provide data exchange and laboratory informatics services to support the Laboratory Response Network (LRN), a global network of public health-related laboratories established to identify and respond quickly to biological, chemical, radiological and natural public health emergencies. ICF will supply the information technology and systems support needed to allow rapid collection, standardized data exchange and analysis of quality data to enable the CDC to quickly pinpoint impending health threats.
"ICF understands the immense importance of surveillance and preparedness systems in identifying and tracking public health threats as well as its use in targeting federal funding to combat specific diseases such as HIV/AIDS," said Mary Whitley, senior vice president for ICF International. "These two awards are standing proof of ICF’s commitment to helping CDC reach its vision for cutting-edge health security in the 21st century."
"ICF is dedicated to providing the best in surveillance, preparedness and response; data analysis; and programmatic support to the CDC’s most significant HIV/AIDS surveillance system, and to helping the agency strengthen, improve and expand the LRN’s data exchange and informatics capabilities to prepare for future emerging threats," said Randy Rutledge, vice president for ICF International.
