CDC taps Orkand for IT support services

One of the Orkand Corp.'s recent wins was with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In August, CDC selected the company to provide information technology-related support of its National Center for Health Statistics.

Awarded under the IT portion of Orkand's General Services Administration corporate contract, the task order includes a one-year base period and four one-year options. The task started Aug. 15.

Under this award, the center can issue work orders to Orkand for various IT-related tasks, including health and medical data analysis, statistical programming, database accessibility, modeling, support and data warehousing.
