CDC Turns to Mobile Applications to Address Employee Stress
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention wants to build its employees’ resistance to stress through an enterprise subscription to a digital health mobile application. The agency’s Office of Safety, Security and Asset Management posted a request for information on March 17 detailing specific features for improving well-being such as mindfulness, meditation and physical activity guides, Nextgov reported Monday.
OSSAM requires the application to be usable on web browsers and capable of integration into the CDC website for new applicants. It also needs to have a management interface and usage reporting functionality.
According to the RFI, the prospective vendor will be tasked with providing a kickoff launch for the application, submitting quality assurance evaluations and monthly reports and supporting meeting and teleconference needs. Additionally, vendors aiming to provide cloud-based software need to have authorization from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.
The contract is expected to have a one-year base period and four one-year options. Responses are due on March 30.
