ANOTHER WAY FOR FEDERAL AGENCIES TO “REACH” HCRS HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT AND PROGRAM INTEGRITY SERVICES… AND TO MEET A WIDE VARIETY OF AGENCY IT NEEDS QUICKLY AND FLEXIBLY
A Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) offers all Federal agencies a streamlined and cost-effective way to purchase Information Technology (IT) services. The two CIO-SP3 GWACs (Chief Information Officer-Solutions and Partners 3) — one for unrestricted procurement (any size business) and one small business version to help agencies reach socioeconomic goals — are 10-year contracts administered on an all-agency basis by NITAAC, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center. CIO-SP3 allows expedited acquisition of health and biomedical related IT services to meet Federal defense and civilian agencies’ scientific, health, administrative, operational managerial, and information management requirements. CIO-SP3 also contains general IT services, because medical systems are increasingly integrated within a broad IT architecture, requiring a systems approach to their implementation.
Many health information management and program integrity services can be obtained through the CIO-SP3 vehicle. HCRS is a subcontractor to one unrestricted and two small business contractors.
|Xerox is our unrestricted (large business) prime contractor for CIOSP-3. Xerox is a growing presence in the Federal IT space, with contracts with some 25 agencies.|
|Paragon is a small business offering logistics, integrated governance, advanced technology and data management services to health, science, other civilian and defense agencies.|
|SCSJV is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Joint Venture, a group of innovative, stable and fiscally responsible, agile and price-sensitive companies, primarily small (85%) and committed to staying together throughout the life of CIO-SP3.|
