  • The Chief Information Officer–Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) Small Business Government Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) is a ten (10) year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. This contract is intended to provide information technology (IT) solutions and services as defined in FAR 2.101(b) and further clarified in the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996. These IT solutions and services include, but are not limited to, health and biomedical-related IT services to meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements. The contract also contains general IT services partly because medical systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, requiring a systems approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation.
  • Scope: CIO-SP3 covers a breadth of solutions for agencies across the federal government to support client missions, in such capability areas as Enterprise systems development and integration, cloud computing, cybersecurity and critical infrastructure protection, data engineering and analytics and health information technology. CIO-SP3 SB has the depth and breadth of scope that complex solutions require, with 10 task areas that meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements. The geographic scope of this requirement includes the Continental United States (CONUS) and Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS).

    NIH is required to collect an NIH Contract Access Fee (NCAF) from its customers to reimburse the cost of operating and administering the CIO-SP3 contract. Effective January 5, 2016 the fee is fixed at .55% (i.e., 0.0055) for any new task orders released under the contract and applied to the total award value for contractor performance. Total award value is all-inclusive: labor, fees (including award fees and incentive pools), and ODCs (including travel). The formula is: Total NCAF = Total Award Value * NCAF Percentage. The NITAAC Program Office has instituted a cap of $150,000 for any task order base or optional period (not to exceed 12 months) with funding in excess of $27 million under the CIO-SP3 Small Business and 8(a) contracts.
