Battelle has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract from the Program Support Center (PSC). The PSC is a shared services provider within the U.S. Government that is used by the Department of the Health and Human Services (HHS) and other federal agencies to coordinate contracts and procurement and provide shared administrative services. The five-year contract (which includes options which could extend the contract vehicle up to an additional five years) puts Battelle on a list of federally approved vendors who can bid on task orders put out by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other federal agencies.
The IDIQ contract has a ceiling of $500 million and can support work in the areas of policy assessment and analysis, program assessments, evaluation design studies and data collection, performance measurement, technical support, data analysis and support services for a wide range of projects for government clients.
Battelle was selected to hold this IDIQ vehicle because of our experience and proven past performance in all scope areas covered by the IDIQ. In the public health arena, Battelle has deep expertise in program and policy assessment and analysis, program management, evaluation design, data collection and analysis, medical readiness and emergency response planning. Battelle researchers have been involved in a number of federal programs and studies, including important studies on tobacco use, breastfeeding, childhood obesity and many other critical public health issues.
