Leidos awarded $60M CDC National Healthcare Safety Network Support task

G2X TAKE: Building on Leidos’ prior experience providing support to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for NHSN, this Fortune 500® IT, engineering, and science solutions and services leader recently beat out 5 other bidders to secure a new 5-year task to provide development, maintenance and support for the nation’s most widely used Healthcare-associated infection (HAI) tracking system. This task was competed and awarded using Alliant 2. 

NHSN provides facilities, states, regions, and the nation with data needed to identify problem areas, measure progress of prevention efforts, and ultimately eliminate healthcare-associated infections. In addition, NHSN allows Healthcare facilities to track blood safety errors and important Healthcare process measures such as Healthcare personnel influenza vaccine status and infection control adherence rates.

  • Leidos is a known incumbent, having previously been awarded a $44M 5-year Prime task order by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2014 to provide testing, maintenance and development of the HSIN application to include level one user support; technical architecture and design; electronic messaging processing and support; and development, deployments, and system documentation efforts. 
  • This is a big win for the Atlanta Leidos team which includes leaders such as Joseph Baweja, who serves as Vice President for Program Management and Public Health Solutions Division Manager supporting CDC; Edwin Kilbourne, MD, a Vice President &Technical Fellow; and Jim Chatfield, Jr. who has been serving as the Program Manager for this contract with the CDC to support, maintain, and enhance the National Healthcare Safety Network. 
  • Leidos, a longtime partner to CDC and CDC CIMS – Mgmt Consulting & IT Infrastructure Prime contract holder, was identified as one of the Federal Health consulting firms creating a BUZZ.
