The Chief Information Officer Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) is a ten (10) year Indefinite Delivery/ Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract.  This contract is intended to provide information technology (IT) solutions and services as defined in FAR 2.101(b) and further clarified in the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996.  These IT solutions and services include health and biomedical-related IT services to meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements.  The contract also contains general IT services partly because medical systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, requiring a systems approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation. 


Through this contract, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC) will award multiple IDIQ contracts under which federal government agencies can award task orders to acquire IT services.  These task orders will employ various pricing arrangements such as Firm-Fixed-Price (FFP), Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee (CPFF), Cost-Plus-Award-Fee (CPAF), Cost-Plus-Incentive-Fee (CPIF), and Time-and-Materials (T&M), all of which are to be issued in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).
