Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced its awards under the small business portion of the $20 billion Chief Information Officers Solutions and Partners III (CIO-SP3) contract this month. To date, the awards under the new CIO-SP3 SB contracting vehicle have gone to 10 service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB) including Evoke Research and Consulting. Each of the companies selected received a 10-year contract with a $20 billion ceiling.
"We’ve partnered with four other small businesses from the D.C. area to offer a core ‘team of experts’ who will deliver diverse, small business solutions to federal agencies,” said Greg Blaisdell, co-owner of Evoke Research and Consulting. “When agencies use the new CIO-SP3 contract vehicle to purchase services, they will leverage experienced, knowledgeable, top-notch CIO, healthcare and IT support services – all under a small business umbrella.”
The Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) has 10 task areas including IT services for biomedical research and health care, CIO support services, integration, imaging, outsourcing, and operations and maintenance.
“It’s our goal to supply a tightly managed, effective, and agile team that responds to emerging government agency needs with on-target, on time, and experienced resources,” said Jim Loreto, co-owner of Evoke.
Jason Latona, Evoke’s CIO-SP3 Program Manager added, “And we have the capacity and flexibility to expand our team to include specific domain or niche technology expertise as needed. We are highly motivated and ready to roll up our sleeves.”
