The National Institutes of Health will rely on BearingPoint Inc. to support information systems the agency uses to produce business intelligence reports.
Terms of the contract, worth up to $35.9 million over five years, call for BearingPoint of McLean, Va., to support NIH's Information Enterprise Systems by developing and maintaining a next-generation data warehouse project, known as nVision, that the agency will use to produce reports for its accounting and administrative business systems.
The first year of the contract is worth $6.9 million, according to a company statement. BearingPoint previously worked on an earlier phase of the project awarded in 2001.
The company has developed a host of business intelligence solutions for NIH to help the agency meet its reporting needs for budget and finance, human resources and acquisition management. BearingPoint also developed a solution to track NIH's inventions, patents and licenses, as well as its property holdings, the company said in a statement.Ethan Butterfield is a staff writer for
