Under the five-year agreement, the American technology company will assist the health agency to enable its mission of leading, conducting and supporting cancer research to increase scientific knowledge and improve the quality of life
Peraton has been awarded a $1.7bn blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to deliver information technology (IT) and professional IT services for the US National Cancer Institute (NCI) Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT).
Under the five-year, unrestricted NCI CBIIT BPA, the American technology company will assist the health agency to enable its mission of leading, conducting and supporting cancer research to increase scientific knowledge and improve the quality of life.
Peraton along with Customer Value Partners (CVP) through a contractor teaming arrangement (CTA) is expected to provide IT operations and service desk services, DevSecOps, cybersecurity, engineering, cloud solutions, and data management capabilities to the health agency.
NCI, which is a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), coordinates cancer research, training, and information dissemination to serve the various requirements of the people in the US.
The department’s activities promote advances in cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment while enabling the declining rates of cancer-related fatalities and new cancer cases in the country.
Peraton defence mission and health solutions sector president Tarik Reyes said: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver impactful outcomes to NCI’s critical mission and meeting the agency’s requirements.
“As a leading mission capability integrator and enterprise IT provider, our team is poised and ready to support the agency.”
Earlier this month, the Virginia-based company was awarded the IMPACT II contract worth up to $342.7m by the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
Under the five-year contract, the company is expected to operate, maintain, and enhance the IT equipment, services, and processes of the US TSA.
