Five contractors have won a five-year, $184 multiple-award contract to provide information technology support services to the National Institutes of Health's National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute .

The winners are:
  • Science Applications International Corp.
  • Booz Allen Hamilton

SAIC was first with its announcement of the win, and subsequently reported to Washington Technology who the other winners were.

Under the contract, the five companies will compete for task orders to support the NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, specifically its IT and Applications Center.

The center directs a range of business, research and clinical informatics programs involving biomedical research, as well as manages the institute’s IT strategy, forecasts future needs and implements IT-related policies and procedures, SAIC said in a release.
