CMS Awards $15 Billion Data Management Contract
November 20, 2012
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services last week awarded a $15 billion contract to consolidate data centers and manage its immense stores of data.
Eight vendors — including CGI Federal, Lockheed Martin, Accenture Federal Services, LLC and National Government Services — were awarded spots on the 10-year contract, according to a notice on FedBizOpps.gov.
The new contract will build on a previous award to Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Companion Data Services about six years ago. All three vendors were also awarded spots on the new contract.
