HHS taps SAIC for HRSA IT contract

Science Applications International Corp. won a $33.9 million contract to perform Web and database application development for a Health Resources and Services Administration grant program.

Under the contract, SAIC of San Diego will deliver lifecycle information technology support services to the Health Resources and Services Administration's Office of Information Technology. The five-year contract is for one year and four one-year options.

The SAIC-led team will deliver services to support HRSA grant program systems in the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the HIV/AIDS Bureau and the Health Professions Bureau. These systems enable grantees and health care providers nationwide to report performance on programs funded by HRSA grants.

In addition, SAIC will furnish subject-matter expertise to Maternal and Child Health Bureau, assist with developing grant guidelines and performance measures and provide direct help in the application processes.

The company also will assist in ongoing development of the Geospatial Data Warehouse, a publicly available Internet tool that offers a single point of access to HRSA programmatic information, health resources and demographic data. Other work under the scope of this contract includes call-center support and network services.

HRSA, which is part of the Health and Human Services Department, is responsible for improving access to health care services for people who are uninsured, isolated or medically vulnerable.
