Statement of Work

This contract is designed to permit the Institutes and Centers (ICs) of NIH, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and all other federal agencies to acquire a wide range of IT services and solutions. These IT services include, but are not limited to, health, health science and biomedical-related IT services to meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements. The contract also contains general IT services partly because healthcare systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, requiring a systems approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation. The focus of this contract is to provide to government agencies a mechanism for streamlined ordering of required IT solutions and services at equitable and reasonable prices.

The task areas included in the contract, in particular the Task Area 1, “IT Services for Biomedical Research, Health Sciences and Healthcare,” support and provide consistency with the accountability goals of the Federal Health Architecture (FHA), whereby federal agencies are to coordinate effective capital planning activities and invest in and implement interoperable health IT. The task areas included in the contract are also designed to support the IT services described in the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA). The Scope of Work set forth under Article C.2., outlines the general requirements of the contractor under this contract. Specific details of task assignments, deliverables, documentation, training, applicable government/department/industry standards, etc., will be provided within individual task orders issued by Ordering Contracting Officer.

The contractor, acting as an independent contractor and not as an agent of the government, shall furnish all materials, personnel, facilities, support and management necessary to provide the services and solutions as set forth in the Scope of Work. The geographic scope of this requirement includes the Continental United States (CONUS) and Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS).
