ManTech designing guidelines for health professionals network

ManTech International Corp. won a $2.4 million contract from the Health and Human Services Dept. to support the development of technical and policy guidelines for a registry of health care volunteers.

The Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals will be used to locate health professionals who can be called upon during declared emergencies.

ManTech will perform the work through December 2006. States that participate in the National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program are expected to comply with the new emergency system guidelines. The National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program prepares hospitals and other health care systems to deliver coordinated care to victims of terrorism and other public health emergencies.

Besides supporting the development of the guidelines, ManTech also will provide technical assistance to participating states, the company said.

ManTech's teammates on the contract include Collaborative Fusion Inc. of Pittsburgh, the American Medical Association and the Joint Commission Resources, an affiliate of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.

The Health and Human Services Department is a new federal customer for ManTech, whose client base mostly consists of the Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and State departments and the intelligence community, the company said.

Based in Fairfax, Va., ManTech provides technologies and solutions focused on mission-critical national security programs. The company employs more than 5,000 people and had 2003 revenue of $701.6 million. It is No. 22 on Washington Technology's 2004 Top 100 list of federal prime contractors.
