CDC taps TRW

TRW Inc. won a $511 million, seven-year contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop and support information systems that aid public health research, surveillance and intervention efforts.

The systems collect and report disease data for surveillance and outbreak investigations; receive, store, retrieve and track laboratory specimens; and perform statistical analyses to identify risk factors and support the development of appropriate public health intervention programs.

Under the new contract, TRW of Cleveland will expand its work to include analyzing information requirements for existing and upcoming public health efforts; managing projects and endeavors critical to these efforts; and training users in both CDC-developed and commercial software applications.

TRW also will contribute to forming a public health information network, so CDC can share information with its public health partners. The work will help CDC meet its homeland security mission.
