SRA Awarded $26.3 Million Task Order to Provide Enterprise-Wide IT Services for National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SRA International , a leading provider of technology and strategic consulting services and solutions to government organizations, today announced it has won a 3.5-year task order to provide enterprise-wide information technology (IT) support services for the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). Awarded in May under the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) CIO-SP2i Contract, the task order has an estimated value of $26.3 million, if all options are exercised.
Under the task order, SRA will provide an enterprise-wide solution for IT infrastructure operations, applications development and bioinformatics systems support for NIEHS, including IT security as well as scientific IT and software applications support.
NIEHS is one of 27 research institutes and centers that comprise NIH. Located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, the institute's mission is to reduce the burden of human illness and disability by understanding how the environment influences the development and progression of human disease. While SRA has long provided a variety of health research services to support NIEHS' programs, this new task order demonstrates the focus SRA has placed on combining science and IT as well as a continued commitment to making a positive impact on environmental health issues.
"SRA has a rich heritage of accomplishment supporting environmental health programs, research and scientific pursuits, as well as enterprise level IT innovation and solutions," said SRA Global Health Sector Senior Vice President Timothy Atkin. "This project is particularly meaningful for us because of the long-standing relationship we have with NIEHS through our health research work and our support of such initiatives as the National Toxicology Program. We are honored to partner with NIEHS to ensure that information technology enhances the scientific efforts to understand environmental impacts and, ultimately, to reduce human illness and disability."
SRA will primarily support this project from its office in Durham, N.C. About SRA International, Inc.
