Unisys To Compete For CIO-SP3 Contract Tasks

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded a contract to Unisys to compete for task orders under the Chief Information Officers-Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) contract.

Unisys is one of 54 companies awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract. The contracts, awarded by the NIH Technology Assessment and Acquisition Center, have a total potential value capped at $20 billion over 10 years and may be used by any federal government agency.

Task orders under the CIO-SP3 contract may be awarded in any of 10 solution areas: IT services related to the federal health mission; IT support for federal CIO offices; services to support the collection, storage, and retrieval of digital images; outsourcing services; IT systems operations and maintenance; IT systems integration; services to protect the government’s critical infrastructure and information; support for online government services offered to citizens and businesses; IT systems to control, monitor and coordinate key business activities across an agency; and software development services. Unisys can compete for task orders across all categories included under the contract.

Unisys was one of the contractors on the previous CIO-SP2i IDIQ contract, which expired this week. CIO-SP3 builds on its predecessor contract with new solution areas for IT services supporting biomedical research, health sciences and health care as well as task orders related to systems and services to support digital imaging.
