Vienna, VA

ActioNet, Inc. announced today its recent award of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Chief Information Officer–Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) Small Business and 8(a) Contracts, a multiple award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract to provide Information Technology Services.


The CIO-SP3 GWAC is a ten (10) year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. This contract is intended to provide information technology (IT) solutions and services as defined in FAR 2.101(b) and further clarified in the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996. These IT solutions and services include, but are not limited to, health 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 medical systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, requiring a systems approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has designated NIH as an Executive Agent for government-wide IT acquisitions pursuant to Section 5112(e) of the Clinger-Cohen Act, 40 U.S.C. Sec. 11302(e). The scope of this designation includes the award and administration of the GWAC. Through this GWAC, Federal government agencies can award task orders to acquire IT services.  Any duly warranted federal government Contracting Officer (as that term is defined in FAR 2.1) in good standing with the appropriate contracting authority is authorized to award task orders under this contract. For purposes of this contract, these individuals are referred to as Ordering Contracting Officers (OCOs). Task orders may be multi-year or include options as defined in FAR Part 17 and agency-specific FAR Part 17 supplements.
