The Chief Information Officer – Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) Government Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) is a ten-year Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract designed to permit NIH Institutes and Centers, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and all other federal agencies to acquire a wide range of IT services and solutions. These IT services include, but are not limited to, health, health science 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 healthcare systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, requiring a system approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation. The focus of this contract is to provide to government agencies a mechanism for streamlined ordering of required IT solutions and services at equitable and reasonable prices.

The task areas included in the contract support and provide consistency with the accountability goals of the Federal Health Architecture (FHA), whereby federal agencies are to coordinate effective capital planning activities and invest in and implement interoperable health IT. The task areas included in the contract are also designed to support the IT services described in the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA).
