Chief Information Officer–Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3)

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH) Information Technology Acquisition, and Assessment Center (NITAAC), the Chief Information Officer – Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) Small Business (SB) contract is a ten-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) for small businesses. This contract is intended to provide Information Technology (IT) solutions and services as defined in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 2.101(b) and further clarified in the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996. The IT support solutions and services, under the contract, include health 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 medical systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, requiring a systematic approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation.

Through this contract, the NITAAC will award multiple IDIQ contracts under which federal government agencies can award task orders to acquire IT services. These task orders will employ various pricing arrangements such as: Firm-Fixed-Price (FFP), Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee (CPFF), Cost-Plus- Award-Fee (CPAF), Cost-Plus-Incentive-Fee (CPIF), and Time-and-Materials (T&M), all of which are to be issued in accordance with the FAR.
