ICF International has won a potential five-year, $8.2 million contract to manage health research data the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention uses to track hazardous chemicals and diseases.
The company will work with scientists at CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health and CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry to manage databases, ICF said Friday.
“Having been engaged in toxicological research for many years, ICF is very excited to support NCEH/ATSDR in this new capacity,” said ICF Vice President Terence McKittrick.
The contract contains one base year and four option years and was awarded to the company in the third quarter of its 2013 fiscal year.
CDC also intends for the company to customize, update, consolidate and maintain IT platforms used by the two agency components.
