DSFederal wins $24 million NIH Blank Purchase Agreement

ROCKVILLE, MD, July 14, 2014 DSFederal today announced a contract win to provide IT services supporting the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through a $24 million ceiling value Blank Purchase Agreement (BPA) titled “Information Technology Research, Application, and Web Development Support Services.”

In its fourth contract supporting NIH, DSFederal brings an impressive offering of expertise required to address a dynamic range of task orders, including “Application and Web Development Support, Scientific Computing and Programming Support, and Information Security.” DSFederal and its teammates currently provide more than 60 experienced staff members throughout three ongoing contracts that support NIH’s 27 Institutes and Centers (ICs.)

This win also represents DSFederal’s second competitive contract award in less than two weeks, a significant feat for the growing, 8(a) Woman-Owned Small business launched in 2007 by CEO Sophia Parker.“This award is meaningful to me because I started supporting NIH in 1999,” Parker said. “I spent the day of 9/11 on campus, in building 12, safeguarding NIH. Serving the ICs to help advance medical research is the highest honor a contractor can ever have.”
