G2X TAKE: In a move that is indicative of the many likely to come, HHS has released this task as unrestricted competition on what is a “small business” vehicle. With dozens of now former small primes set to re-certify as large in 2017, NITAAC will increasingly look to be creative in how they use this GWAC to satisfy customer needs and support the firms that have been critical to the success of this program.

This task was released on CIO-SP3 SB. A link to a copy of the statement of work can be found in the comment thread below.

Looking to partner? There are dozens of firms from small (think Audacious Inquiry or CNSI) to the very large (Accenture or IBM/Truven) who will lay claim to expertise in this area, but a logical place to start on this one is with those firms on CIO-SP3 SB who no longer qualify as small as the decision to compete a need as unrestricted on a SB vehicle is unlikely to have happened by chance. NITAAC clearly identifies those firms who are now large on the front page of their vendor search page here.
