LGS Innovations Receives Award For CIO-SP3 Contract
LGS Innovations™, an independent subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), today announced that it has received an award for the Chief Information Officer—Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) contract to provide a wide range of IT services and solutions to Federal Government agencies.
The contract vehicle, under the direction of the NIH's Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC) and with a ceiling of $20 billion, is intended to provide for health, health science, and biomedical-related IT services to meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements. Because government healthcare systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, the CIO-SP3 contract also allows for general IT purchases across all agencies. CIO-SP3 gives Federal Government agencies a mechanism for quick ordering of needed IT solutions and services for the best value, and offers government agencies an unprecedented breadth of IT in support of the Federal Enterprise Architecture, the Federal Health Architecture, and the DoD Enterprise Architecture. It can be used to meet the requirements of agencies with Data Center Consolidation, Cloud Computing, Health IT, Mobility, and Cybersecurity needs.
