ECS Takes Prime Spot on $500M ARPA-H Contract

The Department of Health and Human Services Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health has named advanced technology, science and engineering solutions provider ECS as a prime contractor for a five-year, $500 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide systems engineering, technical advisory support and other professional services.

Under the deal for the Strategic Technical ARPA-H Talent Support contract vehicle, biomedical and health research programs under ARPA-H will receive support from the contractor and access to a wide range of services and solutions, ECS said.

John Heneghan, ECS president and a 4×24 member, said the company’s decades of experience, including working with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and as a health modernization agency, will help in supporting ARPA-H’s goals. 

ARPA-H has been investing in a wide range of projects to help produce innovative health care solutions. In August 2023, it introduced the Digital Health Security project to keep the country’s health care industry’s digital infrastructure protected from cyberattacks.

In January, it launched a program to enhance health outcomes for rural Americans by focusing on five technical areas, including care delivery platform integration and a medical internet of things platform.
