When the Office of Management and Budget agreed in 2010 to let the National Institutes of Health go forward with its Chief Information Officers-Solutions and Partners 3 governmentwide acquisition contract, it let NIH remain one of a very few agencies allowed to host a GWAC. GWACs require new approval from the Office of Federal Procurement Policy each time they come due for renewal, and there had been some question about whether CIO-SP3 would come to be.
Now the NIH Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC) has awarded the contract to 54 companies. It carries a ceiling of $20 billion. Its predecessor, CIO-SP2i, had a ceiling of $19.5 billion.
The 10-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract offers IT support for Federal Enterprise Architecture, the Federal Health Architecture and the Defense Department Enterprise Architecture.
The GWAC also provides services, including data center consolidation, cloud computing, health IT, mobility and cybersecurity. The winners will compete for task orders.
