The CIO-SP3 contract is a ten (10) year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract.  This contract is provides Information Technology (IT) services and solutions.  These IT solutions and services include, but are not limited to, health and biomedical-related IT services to meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements.  The contract also contains general IT services partly because medical systems are increasingly integrated with a broader IT architecture, requiring a systems approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation.  The Government can procure these services in ten primary task areas, as follows:

          Task Area 1: IT Services for Biomedical Research, Health Sciences,                                  and Healthcare

          Task Area 2: Chief Information Officer (CIO) Support

          Task Area 3: Imaging

          Task Area 4: Outsourcing

          Task Area 5: IT operations and Maintenance

          Task Area 6: Integration Services

          Task Area 7: Critical Infrastructure Protection and Information Assurance

          Task Area 8: Digital Government

          Task Area 9: Enterprise Resource Planning

          Task Area 10: Software Development

 

CONTRACT AND TASK ORDER MANAGEMENT
Contract and task order management is a mandatory element for all task orders placed under the CIO-SP3 contract. The objective of contract and task order management is to provide the program management, project control and contract administration necessary to manage a high volume, multiple contract type task order process for a large, diversified team so that the cost, schedule and quality requirements of each order are tracked, communicated to the government, and ultimately attained. The use of commercially available automated tools (for example - a LAN or Web based contract task management system) and the application of expertise on processes and metrics that support task order management are encouraged to achieve the above objectives. The objective of the tools is to provide quicker access, improved accuracy, and enhanced accessibility for contractors/clients, real-time monitoring of status/deliverables, tracking the quality of work products and gauging overall customer satisfaction.
