Four take spots on $3.6B NIH research contract

Four companies have won positions on a potential five-year, $3.6 billion contract to help the National Institutes of Health carry out current and new biomedical research projects.

Axle Informatics, GAP Solutions, Kelly Services and Medical Science & Computing will also work with NIH on program implementation activities over the duration of the Scientific, Operations and Administrative Resources contract, the agency said in a notice Monday.

NIH received 17 total bids for the contract, according to Federal Procurement Data System information. Kelly Services will continue its incumbency from the previous contract, while the other three are newcomers.

The companies will compete for task orders to assist in experiments, organize data, write reports, provide scientific IT services and support communication efforts.
