Under the terms of the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity award, ICF, Columbia University and Westat Inc., a Rockville, Md., government research firm, will provide global epidemiology and strategic information services to HHS’s Public Health Service.
The scope of the contract calls for ICF to conduct capacity building, technical assistance, implementation, and other services to support the strategic information activities, which could include program monitoring and evaluation, surveillance and surveys.
The activities also involve disease outbreak and epidemiologic investigation, statistics and modeling, health economics and finance analysis, and health information systems support.
