HHS awards $139M IT services purchase agreement to 4 vendors

HHS's Office of the CIO awarded its third Next Generation IT Services blanket purchase agreement worth an estimated $139 million to four vendors, the agency announced Feb. 7.

The IT vendors — CSRA, Leidos, ManTech, and Salient CRGT — will provide engineering expertise to support the agency's email communication, mobile management and endpoint security, among other areas of development.

The blanket purchase agreement will also establish an onsite engineering laboratory fashioned after the HHS environment to help vendors develop and test their solutions.

"This award will provide the engineering expertise necessary to produce solutions supporting the HHS vision of robust, flexible, efficient and secure IT," said Dan Mills, director of enterprise engineering for the Office of IT Infrastructure and Operations.

The initial two Next Generation IT Services blanket purchase agreements went toward developing IT operations and application hosting at HHS. The agency plans to award one more blanket purchase agreement this year for program management integration.
