SAIC gains 6-year life-cycle support contract at HHS office

Award calls also for maintenance and enhancement services

Science Applications International Corp. will provide a wide range of IT services to the Health and Human Services Department under a six-year contract that could be worth more than $15 million if all options are exercised.

The single award calls for SAIC to provide full life-cycle operations, maintenance and enhancement services for HHS’ Health Resources and Services Administration Data Warehouse, according to a Sept. 26 SAIC announcement.

SAIC will also provide full life-cycle support for all information technology systems, following HRSA’s enterprise performance life cycle as appropriate.

The data warehouse was created to serve as the official repository of the office’s data and to provide a single point of access to programmatic information, related health resources, demographic, and statistical data for analyzing and reporting on the office’s activities.

HRSA supports integrated reporting and mapping capabilities designed to make the data available to the broadest range of users, for the greatest range of purposes.

The work will be performed primarily in the national capital region.

SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.

SAIC has been the main contractor for HRSA data warehouse for years now. This is a classic case of government staff being so inadequate that the contractor basically runs this program. Its no surprise they won this solicitation, who else could compete when they were setup to win? They more than likely developed the majority of the government's statement of work. If anyone would spend 5 mins with the government manager for this program, my comments would be validated. You can also bet that your tax dollars spent on this program have greatly increased, but not due to agency mission, due to a contractor with power to sway money their way! BOO-HISS
