MCLEAN, Va., July 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) has been awarded a $52.7 million contract by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide a range of technical services for digital tools and systems in support of the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP).
Chronic diseases account for most deaths in the United States. The CDC's Chronic Disease Prevention System brings together data, health care systems and communities to promote healthy choices and minimize health risk behaviors for all citizens. This work supports the Office of Informatics and Information Resource Management within the NCCDPHP, which is responsible for IT services, application development support, tools, procedures and portfolio management to support this prevention system.
"As the CDC advances technology and informatics, we are proud of our continued collaborative partnership with this customer," said Amy Caro, vice president, health solutions, Northrop Grumman Technology Services. "As the incumbent contractor supporting NCCDPHP, Northrop Grumman is motivated by the better health outcomes that can be seen in the reduction of chronic disease and the impactful change within the health care systems as well as in the behaviors of citizens."
The award is a base-year contract with four option years. This recompete contract is for the previous NCCDPHP Application Portfolio Support and Information Services work order. In the earlier task order, the team's focus was on reducing portfolio complexity. Today, Northrop Grumman's offering is designed to cultivate and grow value across the project portfolio by expanding on our tailored delivery and management processes to provide support that is responsive, flexible and innovative. Northrop Grumman is leading a team including TekSystems, AddiTech and St. John Group.
