ICF to Continue CDC Cancer Surveillance System Maintenance Support

ICF has secured a potential four-year, $9 million task order to help the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintain a system used to track cancer occurrence, treatment and outcomes nationwide.

The company said Monday it will continue to provide maintenance support for CDC’s  National Program of Cancer Registries – Cancer Surveillance System under the recompete task order with one base year and three option years.

“Population-based cancer surveillance is playing an increasing role in informing cancer prevention and control interventions,” said David Cotton, an ICF senior vice president.

Cotton added the company aims to help CDC collect, aggregate and analyze cancer data.

ICF has supported the CDC’s cancer surveillance system since 2000 and has completed 18 consecutive national data submissions from registries across the country.

The NPCR-CSS infrastructure is designed to process statistical data that represents 97 percent of the U.S. population and has the potential to represent the country’s entire population when integrated with data from the National Cancer Institute‘s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results program.
