ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a consulting and technology services provider to government and commercial clients around the world, was recently awarded a new contract by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), Deployment Health Clinical Center (DHCC). The contract has a value of $35 million and a term of five years, including one base and four option years.
ICF has been at the center of critical global health issues for nearly half a century, aligned with clients to improve health outcomes and promote well-being. Whether conducting health-focused surveys, managing confidential data, motivating behavior change or building the capacity of others, ICF informs data-driven decisions when time is of the essence and resources are constrained.
ICF will provide psychological health interdisciplinary support services to augment staff resources at DHCC. Specifically, ICF will provide behavioral health and data subject matter expertise to support DHCC in the areas of psychological health performance and analytics, research, promotion and clinical care; primary care behavioral health; program management; public affairs; strategic planning; and administration and operations.
“For 30 years, ICF has played a key role in helping federal clients evaluate and deliver critical behavioral health interventions to those at risk and in need,” said Terry McKittrick, senior vice president for ICF. “ICF is dedicated to bringing the same high level of expertise and services to support DOD in its efforts to improve the quality of behavioral health services it provides to active military, veterans and their families.”
The Deployment Health Clinical Center is the psychological health component of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury. DHCC’s mission is to improve the lives of our nation’s service members, veterans and families by advancing excellence in psychological health care and prevention of psychological health disorders.
