G2X TAKE: A very big move was announced yesterday as A-TEK, a CIO-SP3 Prime who delivers science and IT services and solutions across a myriad of Government health agencies has acquired Mackson, a Woman-Owned Small Business and technical and professional consultancy, who brings with them access to a number of key contract vehicles and past performance that spans the Federal Health sector, with deep expertise at FDA.
This is a key acquisition for Kathryn Freeland, and the team at A-TEK, as Mackson brings an immediate set of past performance and relationships that cut across NIH, Military Health, VA, and of course, FDA, where the company has really made a name for itself. This includes holding key positions on the FDA Joint Administration Application Development Environment Support Services BPA, prior experience as a Prime supporting CFSAN Pharmacovigilance COTS solution and IT Lifecycle activities, and in support of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Software Development efforts at FDA.
