McLean-based information technology consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton has been awarded a $147.4 million contract to provide technical support for the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
Under the five-year contract, Booz Allen will work with NIAID’s Office of Computer Infrastructure and Computational Biology to develop and maintain clinical regulatory systems and international learning platforms, manage electronic documents and other tasks to improve internal processes. NIAID conducts research to treat and prevent infectious diseases, as well as staging rapid responses for outbreaks of influenza, malaria and, more recently, coronavirus.
