CDC plans BioSense contract

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a draft request for proposals for a planned information technology services contract related to BioSense, its system for early detection of health threats.

The purpose of the draft RFP is to identify interested potential bidders and to answer industry questions. The CDC wants to develop a contract that will provide all the necessary IT tools and services to improve BioSense performance, eliminate duplicated efforts and reduce costs, according to an agency announcement.

The contract would be an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity vehicle with a value ranging from $75 million to $100 million for the winner, according to the CDC.

BioSense is an enterprise architecture that uses standard protocols to allow the CDC to receive information from a wide variety of information systems on different platforms and languages, and provide services to an array of health care organizations.
