ICF International to Provide Information Management and Management Consulting Support to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
ICF Services to be Provided Under New $5 Billion ID/IQ Award
Fairfax, Virginia, October 4, 2010 -
ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, has been awarded a new multiple-award ID/IQ contract by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to support CDC Information Management Services (CIMS). The total potential value to ICF, which bid on two of the three domains, is $4 billion. The term includes two base years and four two-year options, for a total of up to 10 years.
The contract is a CDC-wide Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract vehicle that will consolidate all information technology (IT), management consulting, and technology infrastructure activities for the next decade. ICF did not pursue the infrastructure domain.
The goals for the ICF team will be to assist CDC in planning and implementing health informatics and IT; performing management support; and reengineering surveillance, epidemiology, and programmatic approaches. To reach those goals, ICF will develop disease surveillance and program data collection systems; conduct data analysis and decision support; support grant awards and grants management activities; and assess new technologies for data gathering, compilation, and analysis.
"ICF combines expertise in domestic and international public health, information technology, and management consulting with experience managing large multi-task contracts," said David Cotton, senior vice president for ICF International and CIMS program director. "ICF has more than 20 years of experience in providing survey research, health informatics, management consultation, program development, and evaluation services to CDC, including designing and conducting large sample surveys and building health-related technology solutions."
"In this era of greater emphasis on health care reform, emergency response, and the increasing pace of innovation in health informatics and related information management technologies, we are eager to share our expanded expertise and range of capabilities with CDC. We are honored to have served the dedicated professionals at CDC for two decades, and our commitment and support of the CDC mission to safeguard the health of our nation and the world is even stronger today with the combined ICF team," added Mary Whitley, a senior vice president for ICF International.
"This contract, one of several recent contracts ICF has won to support CDC, recognizes ICF's capability in providing full-service health applications and is another example of how ICF is able to take advisory expertise and move it across the spectrum of implementation and evaluation services," said Sudhakar Kesavan, Chairman and CEO for ICF International.
