Perspecta has secured a potential five-year, $40M contract to help the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention address public health threats with the use of spatial data analysis and communication tools.

The company said Tuesday it will combine geospatial statistics, epidemiology and environmental models with information technology methods in efforts to analyze location and health data for the agency.

CDC has issued 11 task orders worth $14.2M combined through the agency’s Geospatial Research, Analysis and Services Program to date.

Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Perspecta said the company “takes pride in knowing that the work we do directly impacts the people in the communities in which we live and work.”

“We look forward to leveraging our geographic information system and IT capabilities to play a pivotal role in helping the CDC protect American citizens from health, safety and security threats both in the United States and abroad,” added Curtis, a four-time Wash100 winner.

Perspecta will also work with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry and its public health partners under the GRASP indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
