ICF to Continue CDC Public Health Surveillance System Support

ICF has won a potential three-year, $20 million task order to help the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention update a cloud-based public health surveillance system.

The company said Thursday it will provide technical expertise and support services for the surveillance, information management, technology, data management and analytic tools of the agency’s BioSense platform.

The recompete task order contains a one-year base period and two option years.

Terence McKittrick, an ICF senior vice president, said the system is designed to store almost 40 terabytes of data the agency uses to monitor health trends nationwide.

CDC seeks to modernize BioSense and expand the technology’s coverage in efforts to create situational awareness across the federal, state and local government sectors.

The agency awarded the company a separate four-year, $9 million task order in December of last year to support maintenance of the National Program of Cancer Registries – Cancer Surveillance System.

The company will also help the U.S. Agency for International Development implement infectious disease surveillance measures under a potential five-year, $120 million task order awarded in late July.
