​GSA approves first addition of Health IT SIN

Posted (Last updated )

AMERICAN SYSTEMS today announced it received a modification from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) adding the new Health IT Special Item Number (SIN) 132-56 to the company’s existing IT Schedule 70 (GS-35F-500CA). The Health IT SIN was developed by GSA to assist federal customer agencies in finding IT expertise that meets their highly specialized requirements. This new SIN will pull together offerings from across the health IT spectrum including areas such as health analytics, innovative health IT solutions, and health informatics.

As a growing provider of federal healthcare IT services, this was an important SIN for AMERICAN SYSTEMS to obtain. As the healthcare market continues to grow at a rapid pace, this SIN will offer government Contracting Officers the ability to acquire healthcare technology services quickly and efficiently via GSA Schedule 70.

“AMERICAN SYSTEMS is proud to be able to market our services under the new Health IT SIN for Schedule 70,” said Peter Smith, President and CEO of AMERICAN SYSTEMS. “With a focus on defense health and operational medicine, this will help us meet the future healthcare IT needs of our country by providing easy access to our Healthcare IT services”

G2X TAKE: GSA wasted little time as the first company to “offer healthcare IT services under new SIN” has reportedly received the modification to their IT-70 schedule. It is anticipated that the number of firms submitting to add the SIN is very high and you can expect those who get in early to aggressively market this vehicle.

Only time will tell how quickly GSA will get traction with this new SIN, but with most contracting shops having familiarity with IT-70, we would not expect it to be too long before we see some action. Good move by Andrea Wright and the team at AMERICAN SYSTEMS for aggressively pursuing this and being wise enough to take advantage of the opportunity to market the early move in advance of DHITS.
