Ciber Inc. won a five-year, $13.1 million IT outsourcing contract from the Womack Army Medical Center at Fort Bragg, N.C.
Under the contract, Ciber of Denver will handle network operations, help desk, Web development, systems analysis and project management services.
The hospital is outsourcing IT processes to reduce costs and focus on its core mission of furnishing high-quality health care to active and retired military personnel, the company said in a statement. Womack serves 160,000 eligible beneficiaries in a 40-mile radius.
While the contract is Ciber's first military hospital IT support project, it has worked with the Army for many years delivering similar services to the Army Reserve, several bases, the Judge Advocate General's Corp. and many regional support commands.
Ciber has about 8,000 employees and annual sales of $950 million. The company ranks No. 94
on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100
list of federal prime contractors. The 2006 Top 100 list will be released May 15.
