Fairfax, VA, Jan 19, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE)—SRA International, Inc. (NYSE: SRX), a leading provider of technology and strategic consulting services and solutions to government organizations and commercial clients, today announced that, on behalf of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Department of the Interior/National Business Center/Acquisition Services Directorate-Herndon has awarded SRA the Mission Accomplishment and Regulatory Compliance Services (MARCS) Integration Contract (MIC). The single-award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract has a total ceiling value of $98 million over a five-year period of performance.
Under the contract, SRA will work with FDA’s Offices of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) and Information Management to design, develop and implement IT solutions that better automate field operations (domestic and foreign) such as inspections, sample collection and analysis, import screening and review, recalls, and their relationships with compliance activities, as well as the work planning, scheduling, and performance information related to those activities and their management.
“FDA plays a central role in protecting the American public with respect to food safety, drugs and other products that it regulates,” said SRA Health & Civil Services Senior Vice President Max Hall. “This is a major opportunity to assist FDA in meeting its rapidly expanding responsibilities for public health and safety, and we look forward to providing improved tools that will help them carry out this significant mission every day.”
The contract is intended to help FDA enhance its capabilities to meet congressional mandates and public expectations. Food safety violations resulting in threats to public health are front-page news, and domestic as well as imported products that FDA regulates pose a greater threat to the nation than ever before. Legislation such as the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 and the pending Food Safety Enhancement Act have expanded FDA’s regulatory authority to address these concerns, and have also expanded the workload of ORA.
SRA MARCS partners include Emergint, Inc.; Everware CBDI; Guident Technologies; IntegrityOne Partners; Mythics, Inc.; NTELX; Neilson Consulting; and Quality Resource Systems, Inc.
