Acentia has bought a 40-year-old Atlanta company that holds a contract vehicle that Acentia saw as critical to its health care strategy.
Business Computer Applications Inc. holds the CIMS Information Management Services contract. It also counts as its customers agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and the Health Resources & Services Agency.
The company’s services are focused on helping customers gain efficiencies and modernizing their infrastructures, according to an Acentia statement.
The CIMS contract “allows us to compete for important full and open work with CDC,” Acentia CEO Todd Stottlemyer said.
The acquisition also gives Acentia the opportunity to combine its technical skills with BCA’s relationships and domain expertise, he said.
“Acentia’s strategic goals are simple—providing innovative solutions to help the CDC and other health agencies meet their mission-critical public health and other priorities,” Stottlemyer said.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but BCA adds about 30 employees to Acentia’s 1,100.
The acquisition of BCA follows Acentia’s purchase of InSysCo in November and 2020 Company in April 2012.
