IT Services for Biomedical Research and Healthcare

Task Area 1

Task Area 1 specifically provides examples of solutions and services pertaining to biomedical research,
health sciences, and healthcare. However, all other nine task areas may be used to support a health related mission. For this reason, in addition to providing an expertise in IT services, the contractor must demonstrate that it has a domain-specific capability in a health-related mission. The objective of this task area is to support Biomedical Research, Health Sciences and Healthcare by performing studies and analyses and providing operational, technical, and maintenance services for the systems, subsystems, and equipment, some of which interface with, and are extensions to, information systems throughout the federal government.
