The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has broadened its work with BearingPoint Inc. under a newly awarded contract under which the company will provide program management support for programs covering communications and alerting, distance-learning architecture and international informatics.

BearingPoint's contract is with the National Center for Public Health Informatics, an organization within CDC. The contract is worth $2.8 million for the initial nine months, with two annual options, and has a potential total value of $9.8 million if all options are exercised.
