ICF Wins $45 Million NIH Contract

ICF International, a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, has been awarded a three-year, $45 million task order by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Under this contract, ICF will continue to provide support for biomedical, health, and disaster information management services, such as data collection and analysis, information dissemination, and outreach initiatives for multiple NIH Institutes and Centers, including the National Library of Medicine (NLM), the National Cancer Institute, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, and other NIH partner agencies within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

In addition, the company will support key programs related to HIV/AIDS, genetics, cancer, rare diseases, dietary supplements, clinical trials, and other federal health initiatives.

“ICF is delighted to be selected to continue our support of NIH,” said Matthew Perry, senior vice president and program director for ICF International. “We are proud to provide our combination of subject matter expertise and innovative information technology that directly support our clients’ mission to perform scientific research and disseminate evidenced-based health information for the benefit of the public.”

This award strengthens ICF’s existing portfolio of large health informatics contracts, which includes projects at NIH and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“We are excited to win one of the first large task order awards under the Government-wide CIO-SP3 contract,” said Mary Whitley, senior vice president for ICF International. “We are committed to employing the right combination of systems, services, personnel, and management agility to address the dynamic needs of NLM and our other federal government clients and assist them in achieving their strategic and organizational goals.”
