Octo Consulting wins $75M NIH NCI IT Infrastructure Support Services contract

G2X TAKE: Beating out 8 other bidders, CIO-SP3 SB Prime Octo Consulting just scored this 5-year task to provide infrastructure support services to the National Cancer Institute’s Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT), the organization that leads the coordination, development, and deployment of enterprise-wide digital capabilities (including biomedical informatics, scientific-management information systems, and computing resources) in support of the Institute’s initiatives.

Competed using CIO-SP3 SB in the Other Than Small category, this contract is understood to have previously been part of a larger support contract held by CSRA (now GDIT) that was split into three pieces this time around. The second and third task order have not been awarded yet.

Led by FedHealthIT100 award winner, Jay Shah, the Health IT Group at Octo Consulting is by no means a new face at NIH, having supported NIH as a Prime IT services and consulting partner for nearly a decade. In addition, this group is continuing to find ways to expand their Federal Health footprint, to include recently winning a heavily contested HHS SAMHSA Application Development Support Services contract; adding their first DHA award, a DCoE IM/IT Support Task; as well as gaining a Prime position on a new Agile BPA at CMS. Having proven quite adept at gaining a foothold and finding ways to expand, this is one group to keep an eye on as both a partner and potential competitor.

We should note that Octo also recently recruited veteran growth leader, Ian Graham as a new Health IT Exec to lead growth and operations at NIH, CDC, and CMS.
