NCI Receives New Contract to Help Modernize Army’s Health IT Systems
NCI Information Systems has received a follow-on three-year, $28M contract to upgrade the Defense Health Agency’s wired and wireless local area networks.
The Army’s Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-3 Services multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity agreement calls for the Virginia-based defense contractor to deliver engineering, procurement, integration, cybersecurity and testing services for 24 military treatment facilities, or MTFs, in the continental and outside contiguous U.S. locations, the company said Tuesday.
The modernization efforts are meant to support the company’s established customer, the Army Information Systems Engineering Command Fort Detrick Engineering Directorate, and to sustain and secure the MTFs’ existing network infrastructure and devices.
Paul Dillahay, president and CEO, a Potomac Officers Club member and a 2020 Wash100 winner, said the modernization of the nation’s military health systems and network will allow the efficient management of patient care in the facilities.
“This win is a pivotal piece of NCI’s business strategy to enhance our value-based, innovative solutions while exploring opportunities to utilize our artificial intelligence and digital transformation technologies to deliver critical information assurance and unparalleled systems,” he said.
In a statement, the company said the DHA is working to install and maintain a common, standards-based telecommunications infrastructure for the Department of Defense’s global medical community.
The IT infrastructure is seen to provide a robust network with the connectivity, reliability, data integrity and information security that will enable medical professionals to offer high-quality care to members of the armed forces and their families.
Based in Reston, Virginia, NCI was founded in 1989, specializing in big data and data analytics, health IT and program integrity, cybersecurity and information assurance, engineering and logistics, artificial intelligence, hyper-converged infrastructure, agile DevSecOps and digital transformation.
The company offers its services to the defense, intelligence, health and civilian government agencies.
