These contracts (HHSN316201200073W) for 8(a) and (HHSN316201200111W) for SB is intended to provide IT solutions and services as defined in FAR 2.101(b) and further clarified in the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996. NITAAC intends to award multiple IDIQ contracts for acquiring a wide range of IT services and solutions for the Institutes and Centers (ICs) of the NIH, for the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and for all other federal agencies. These IT services include health, health science and biomedical-related IT services to meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements.
The contract also contains general IT services partly because healthcare systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, requiring a systems approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation. The focus of this contract is to provide to government agencies a mechanism for quick ordering of needed IT solutions and services at equitable and reasonable prices, to give qualified small businesses a greater opportunity to participate in these requirements, and as a result, give government agencies a mechanism to help meet their socio-economic contracting goals. The task areas included in the contract, in particular the Task Area 1, “IT Services for Biomedical Research, Health Sciences and Healthcare,” support and provide consistency with the accountability goals of the Federal Health Architecture (FHA), whereby federal agencies are to coordinate effective capital planning activities and invest in and implement interoperable health IT.
Prompt Payment Term = Net 30.
