BearingPoint's contract is with the National Center for Public Health Informatics, an organization within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The contract is worth $2.8 million for the initial nine months, with two annual options, and has a potential total value of $9.8 million if all options are exercised.

The company also will provide communication and alerting capabilities and assistance with international informatics.
