Robert Coen: NIH's CIO-CS Vehicle to Complete Carnegie Mellon Assessment By Year's End - top government contractors - best government contracting event

electronic health record EHRRobert Coen, program director for the National Institutes of Health's Chief Information Officer-Commodity Solutions governmentwide acquisition contract, has said the vehicle could complete Carnegie Mellon University's assessment program by the end of 2015, Federal Times reported Friday.

Aaron Boyd writes the CIO-CS vehicle would be the first governmentwide acquisition contract to obtain a level-three Carnegie Mellon Capability Maturity Model Integration certification.

The five-year, $20 billion contract vehicle from NIH's Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center started operations on May 1, according to the report.

Coen said work on the front end helped NITAAC wrap up the contract vehicle and transition the program from the legacy Electronic Commodities Store III contract, Federal Times reports.

“Strong partnerships and including industry in the process from two years out right through to award was very, very important,” Coen added.

“We did debriefings and explained in detail where the shortfalls were on those proposals that did not make it,” he said.
