G2X TAKE: From NIH and CDC to FDA and ACF, this global consulting and technology services provider, and major partner to the Department of Health and Human Services, just had a huge quarter in support of HHS, winning task after task across a number of agencies and contract vehicles.
If you are keeping score at home, a few of the more notable wins for ICF in the 4th quarter of fiscal year 2020 include having:
- added nearly $100M in ACF Head Start Training and Technical Assistance Services contract wins;
- been awarded a $25 Million 5-year task win on CIO-SP3 to support development of a new cloud-based National Child Welfare Data Management System (there were no other bidders);
- picked up a 5 1/2-year $30M CIO-SP3 task with HHS to provide Technical Assistance on State, Tribal, Federal Child Welfare Information Systems (no other bidders);
- been awarded a $94 Million CIO-SP3 task with HHS to continue to manage the Child Welfare Information Gateway, while supporting modernization and rehosting efforts (there was one other bid);
- added a $31M 2 1/2-year National Clearinghouse for Homeless Youth and Families task on the HHS PSC IDIQ (there were no other bidders);
- scored a $49M single-award Digital Service Center BPA win with the Food and Drug Administration to develop, maintain and enhance existing and to‐be‐determined applications that reside in the DSC environment (competed on IT-70- two other bids);
- beat out one other bidder to secure a 2-year $9M task on CIO-SP3 with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide process and experience support to the Office of the CIO; and beat out one other bidder to be awarded a $10M 2-year CIO-SP3 task to provide the Office of the CIO with Management Consulting and IT Modernization support.
- Over at NIH, ICF beat out two other bidders to win a 3-year $30M task on the new NIH Biomedical, Public Health, Clinical and Consumer Health Information Services BPA to provide support for clinical trials information; and they beat out one other bidder at NIH for a 2-year $7M CIO-SP3 task to provide integrated information services support to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.
- AND, in addition to winning the all important tasks, ICF also managed to secure a Prime spot on the aforementioned $49M Biomedical, Public Health, Clinical and Consumer Health Information Support Services BPA with NIH; and they recently beat out one other bidder to be awarded a 5-year single-award Dockets Management and Analysis Support BPA with the Food and Drug Administration – this was competed using the GSA Professional Services Schedule (PSS).
- ICF announced earlier this year that it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Incentive Technology Group, LLC (“iTG”), one of the leading and fastest growing providers of cloud-based platform services to the U.S. Federal Government. More here. iTG is a known incumbent on the FDA DSC effort.
- Just a few of the many other key wins ICF (to include iTG) has added at HHS earlier this year include a 5-year CDC Emerging Technology & Design Acceleration task; a Prime spot on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Advancing the Future of Work at CDC BPA; a $29M HHS Financial Management System Modernization task; a Prime role on an 8-year HHS OCIO Technical Support Services BPA; a 3 1/2-year $49M NCI CBIIT Digital Support Services task; a 3-year ServiceNow Application development and Workflow Design contract at CMS; a $48M HHS OIG Mission and Business Systems Modernization award; and a 4-year CMCS Medicaid and CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program) Program system (MACPro) support award. It has been a big year for ICF at HHS.
- In the last year or two ICF has recruited Fed Health Industry leader Karen Holloway as Senior Vice President; added veteran Federal Health Growth leader Kim McCarley; and added Evan Lee, a former CTO with HHS OIG as a VP. In addition, the acquisition of iTG means noted Digital Transformation and recent Federal Change Agent Awardee David Yang re-joins ICF as a Vice President.
- 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. To drive the point home, here we detail more than $150M in new wins ICF added across HHS and NIH to close Q4 FY 2019.
- ICF was recently named among the list of the NXT UP firms poised to make big waves in the Federal sector in 2020 and for years to come.
