Dell Services announced today that it has been selected to provide the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with comprehensive IT infrastructure, application and user support services. Under a five-year, $120+ million, Information Technology Infrastructure Support Services (ITISS) contract, Dell and the CDC will extend their 11-year relationship to drive efficiencies and ensure that CDC scientists and administrators have the high levels of IT support they require to protect America from health, safety and security threats.
The CDC, located in Atlanta, Ga., is an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). As the world’s leading public health agency, the CDC has responsibility for promoting health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury and disability. The CDC works with states, local public health agencies and partners throughout the U.S. and the world to accomplish this mission. For the past 11 years, Dell has partnered with the CDC to ensure uninterrupted research for its 16,000 researchers and end users conducting biomedical research and public health preparedness and response.
The Dell Services Federal Government group will provide the CDC with IT infrastructure services that support its vision of IT serving an enabling role in achieving agency goals. Maintaining this edge in an era of information explosion is critical to the CDC. The CDC has developed strategies to use information technology to effectively and efficiently facilitate the mission, while protecting the integrity and confidentially of its information data resources. Dell will provide timely, comprehensive, reliable, and cost-effective solutions to ensure mission and program accomplishment.
“We have had a long-standing, successful relationship with the CDC that has allowed us to demonstrate first-hand the merits of automated, streamlined processes, rapid deployment of customized applications, centralized service desks, high network availability and remote desktop support,” said George Newstrom, vice president and general manager, Dell Services Federal Government. “We truly understand the CDC mission and can help it innovate IT operations, control costs and drive efficiencies so it can continue to focus on its mission of protecting America from health and safety threats regardless from where they may arise.”
