Palantir to Support Government’s COVID-19 Response Through CDC Contract

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded Palantir Technologies a six-month, $5.3 million contract to provide software solutions in support of the federal government’s COVID-19 response efforts.

Palantir’s software will help organizations integrate data, decisions and operations. It is designed to meet demands with increasing complexity and support data-driven decision-making, such as vaccine management and therapeutics.

The new contract follows an award from the Department of Health and Human Services in mid-2020 to power Tiberius, a platform created to support vaccine distribution and monitor the vaccine supply chain, Palantir said Tuesday.

The company used its Foundry platform to power the HHS monitoring solution. In July 2021, HHS issued a one-year contract renewal and extension to allow the tech provider to operate Tiberius.

Bill Kassler, chief medical officer at Palantir, said real-time situational awareness is needed to ensure that the federal government’s coronavirus response is at its optimal, especially considering that the virus evolves rapidly. According to Kassler, the company has the tools and technologies to keep public health officials informed with new trends, medications and other resources that are needed to protect people from the virus.

Palantir offers multiple platforms and services to support artificial intelligence and machine learning, contract management, digital currency management, data protection and other technology and critical infrastructure sectors. It is headquartered in Denver and has multiple locations within and outside the U.S.
