G2X TAKE: Guidehouse, a global strategy, technology and management consultancy, has had a busy year end at NIH, as they picked a string of task wins to support efforts ranging from development of a Digital Strategy Roadmap for NIH OD and a $17M effort to provide Information Technology Resource Center (ITRC) support, to a task to provide Change Management and Research funding system support for the NIH National Cancer Institute. The series of tasks they added were nearly all competed and awarded under the new multiple-award National Institutes of Health Business and Professional Support Services II (NIHBPSSII) IT Modernization IDIQ.
- Guidehouse was one of the large businesses named early this year to this multiple-award NIHBPSSII IDIQ contract to provide NIH with a wide range of services related to Business and Professional Support Services for Financial Analysis, Business Solutions, and Acquisition Lifecycle Support; Business Process Improvement and Organizational Assessment; Communication and Training; Program Planning and Management Services; Supply Chain Management; Asset Management; Policy Development, Implementation, and Administration; System Integration; and Centers of Excellence Support Services.
- Acquired by an affiliate of Veritas Capital on May 1, 2018, Guidehouse, the former PwC Public Sector group, rolled out their new website and brand this time last summer, and just this month Guidehouse completed the acquisition of Navigant Consulting. Upon the closing, Guidehouse is now a global organization with more than 7,000 employees in over 50 offices worldwide.
- Earlier this year Guidehouse added key wins on a Financial Management & IT Support BPA at HHS and on the HHS-wide Intelligence Automation/Artificial Intelligence (IAAI) IDIQ. With a growing list of Prime contract vehicles, to include CIO-SP3, SIISS and OASIS, and a broad Federal Health footprint, the messaging and actions taken by this still relatively new standalone entity will and should be watched closely by competitors, partners and customers alike as Guidehouse and Veritas Capital will undoubtedly be looking to flex their muscles and score some early wins.
- Guidehouse was identified early this year as one of the Federal Health consulting firms creating a BUZZ.
