Ellicott City-based A-TEK has been awarded a technology contract with the National Institutes of Health valued at $20 billion over its 10-year term, the company reported.
A-TEK provides scientific data management and enterprise IT services in the areas of national security and intelligence, life sciences, healthcare, and law enforcement. The company said the NIH contract covers health and biomedical-related IT services in support of federal agencies’ health missions in 10 functional areas.
“We are pleased to be among the awardees of the CIO-SP3 contract in all ten functional areas,” Kathryn Freeland, A-TEK’s CEO, said in a press release.
“This award allows A-TEK and its teaming partners of both large and small businesses to continue supporting mission-critical programs within the federal marketplace utilizing the CIO-SP3 vehicle,” Freeland said.
CIO-SDP3 is the successor to a contract A-TEK already holds.
