Qbase, an enterprise services and digital transformation leader, was awarded the Chief Information Officer – Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) Small Business On-Ramp by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC).

This indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) multiple award government-wide acquisition contract (GWAC) has a ceiling of $20B and provides federal agencies with a pool of highly qualified small businesses to help meet their contracting goals. Federal agencies use CIO-SP3 Small Business to procure a wide range of information technology (IT) services spanning ten task areas, including software development, IT operations and maintenance, integration services, information assurance, and IT services for biomedical research, health sciences, and healthcare.

“NITAAC’s CIO-SP3 contract has earned its Best-in-Class (BIC) status within the Federal Government,” said Qbase’s EVP of Health Information Technology Solutions, Gary Sofo. “We are excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with customers in developing innovative Health IT solutions to meet evolving mission requirements.”

The CIO-SP3 government-wide acquisition contract is designed to permit the Institutes and Centers (IC) of NIH, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and all other federal agencies to acquire a wide range of information technology (IT) solutions and services as defined in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 2.101(b), and further clarified in the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996. 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 streamlined ordering of required IT solutions and services at equitable and reasonable prices.
