Rockville, Md. – An Abt Associates-led team has been awarded a position on a $250 million, five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract that addresses a variety of health challenges. This gives the Abt team the right to bid on task orders covering issues ranging from substance use disorders and HIV/AIDS to maternal and child healthcare.
The contract calls for technical assistance for the HIV/AIDS Bureau, Maternal Child Health Bureau and the Bureaus of Primary Health Care and Health Workforce, which are part of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The assistance may include program development, leadership development, performance data collection, quality assurance, continuous quality improvement, and promotion of collaboration among grantees and sharing of evidence-based practices. The team also may train HRSA staff and grantees to improve access to health care for underserved and vulnerable populations as well as improve HRSA internal systems and develop related educational materials.
“We have extensive experience working with HRSA and substantive expertise in improving health systems and health care delivery, including on-the-ground experience in clinical care” said Christopher Spera, Ph.D., Abt vice president of health and environment. “We look forward to expanding our impact in these areas through this IDIQ.”
