NIH makes first set of awards under CIO-SP3 GWAC
Tuesday - 5/22/2012, 3:44pm EDT
The National Institutes of Health gave 10 service disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs) spots in its CIO-SP3 Small Business GWAC.
Under the 10-year deal that has a ceiling of $20 billion, NIH will make other awards to small businesses under the 8(a), HUBZone and other socio-economic categories in the coming month.
"Together, the CIO-SP3 GWACs are designed to support the federal enterprise architecture, the federal health architecture and the DoD enterprise architecture, providing a full range of information-technology services and solutions to the federal government," NIH said in its press release announcing the SDVOSBs awards.
The 10 service disabled veteran-owned small businesses winners are:
- LongView International Technology Solutions Inc., North Bethesda, Md.
- DV United, Warrenton, Va.
- Focused Management Inc., Alexandria, Va.
- Technatomy Corp., Fairfax, Va.
- TISTA Science and Technology Corp., Bethesda, Md.
- HMS Technologies Inc., Martinsburg, W.Va.
- Systems Made Simple, McLean, Va.
- Cambridge International Systems, Arlington, Va.
- Evoke Research & Consulting LLC, Arlington, Va.
- Strategic Collaborative Solutions LLC Joint Venture, Reston, Va.
"These IT services meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial and information-management requirements within a broad IT architecture requiring a systems approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operations," NIH states on its CIO-SP3 website.
NIH first issued the request for proposals for CIO-SP3 in September 2010.
CIO-SP3 is the follow-on to CIO-SP2, which has 48 separate contracts: 27 were awarded to large businesses and 21 were awarded to small businesses. CIO-SP2 has a $19.5 billion ceiling, but agencies have spent less than $10 billion on it since 2000.
NIH extended CIO-SP2 in December, and it now will expire June 20, 2012.
