The Chief Information Officer –Commodity Solutions (CIO-CS) Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) is a ten (10) year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract intended to provide information technology (IT) commodities and solutions that include health and biomedical-related IT commodities to meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements. The contract also contains general IT commodities 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.
The Sources Sought Notice and Draft RFP for CIO-CS was issued March 18, 2013.
