G2X TAKE: ICF continues to be one of the biggest Federal Health players that many traditional IT and consulting players know little about as they quietly compete for (and win!) work in areas where most don’t dare venture as the work requires the need for a combination of specialized Public Health expertise, Data Science, Communications and Digital/Technology capabilities that few have. A sampling of their Q4 wins include:
- ICF recently added a new single-award BPA to provide a range of Biomedical and Clinical Information Services for the National Library of Medicine and Other NIH Institutes and Centers. The BPA was awarded as a follow-on action following initial competitive action. Nearly 20 tasks immediately followed to support NIH and NLM efforts ranging from providing support for ClinicalTrials.gov, Genetic Home Reference, and AIDSinfo, and infoSIDA Services, to providing support and consulting for a variety of Data Science and Communications initiatives.
- ICF was one of three who received a 5-year $33M task to provide a range of technical support services to the Office of Computer and Communications Systems (OCCS).
- Beating out two other bidders, ICF was awarded a 5-year $98M Child Welfare Capacity Building Center for States task with HHS.
- ICF added a 3-year $5.4M NIH OSPEEC awards Strategic Communications task win.
- A 3-year $9M NIH Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center support task went to ICF.
In addition, we should note that ICF recently recruited Fed Health Industry leader, Karen Holloway as Senior Vice President, and they added veteran Federal Health Growth leader Kim McCarley, while adding Prime access to a number of new key contract vehicles across HHS, to include a $50M HHS HRSA Evaluation Studies IDIQ, and the $250M HRSA Technical Assistance IDIQ.
- This time last year, ICF recruited Evan Lee, a former CTO with HHS OIG, focused on establishing Digital Service, supporting IT Modernization, Data Accountability and Transparency as the VP for IT and Analytics Modernization with Digital Strategy.
- ICF is a global consulting services company who can lay claim to having 1,000 practitioners and scientists in their Health group. The company continues to be one of the biggest Federal Health players based on their ability to bring in expertise from their senior policy leaders, digital strategists, data scientists, and creatives.
