Computer Sciences Corp. has won a task order to provide computing, network services and other technology support to the National Library of Medicine's Office of Computer and Communications Systems for up to a decade.
The time and materials task order, which has one base year with nine one-year options, is valued at $223 million over the 10-year period.
The order, announced Oct. 30, was awarded through the National Institutes of Health governmentwide contract, Chief Information Officers Solutions and Partners 2, or CIO-SP2.
The Office of Computer and Communications Systems develops and provides the library with backbone computer networking facilities, and supports, guides and assists other library components in local area networking.
The office also helps to coordinate, integrate and standardize an array of computer services available throughout the organizations that comprise the library.
CSC of El Segundo, Calif., will be supported by subcontractor AAC Associates Inc. of Vienna, Va. AAC provided network support to the office from 1983 to 1997.
"This is a case in which CSC's strength in business processes, combined with AAC's previous experience with the [library], produced a winning solution for our customer," said Marcia Kim, vice president of citizen services within CSC's civil group.
