CIO-SP3 SB (HZ)
The Chief Information Officer–Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3)
government-wide acquisition contract (GWAC) is a 10-year indefinite delivery,
indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract managed by the National Institutes
of Health (NIH) and National Information Technology Acquisitions and Assessment
This 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.
