Prometheus was the first organization to successfully submit data to the NIH's National Database for Autism Research (NDAR) and the only organization to develop a cost-effective service that streamlines the NDAR submission process for researchers.
Under the CIO-SP3 contract, Prometheus assumes individual task orders for IT services and solutions to federal agencies. Services awarded through the CIO-SP3 address 10 key task areas including IT services for biomedical research and health care, CIO support, data repository integration, biorepository development, critical infrastructure protection, enterprise management, business intelligence, data integration, and software development.
