GDIT Secures $171M Army Biomedical Research Support Contract
The U.S. Army has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology its five-year, $171 million Biomedical Research Application Evaluation and Support contract to support the Army Medical Research and Development Command and the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs.
Under the contract, GDIT will provide scientific, software development and program management services that will support biomedical research grant applications. The company will also evaluate applications, work with scientists, clinicians and patient advocates, and serve on peer review panels.
The Department of Defense’s CDMRP is a funding organization that supports novel approaches to biomedical research. It was established in 1992 with a mission to transform health care for servicemen, veterans and the general public, GDIT said.
Kevin Connell, vice president and general manager for science and engineering at GDIT, said supporting scientific grant applications is critical because it allows the government to make sound investment decisions. He noted that the contract will allow the company to continue its longstanding partnership with the organization and support research that could improve lives.
The IT service management company has been supporting the funding organization for 27 years.
GDIT offers artificial intelligence, cloud, data and analytics, digital modernization and mission support services to various clients, including those in the defense, intelligence, health and homeland security sectors. It is headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia.
