Leidos has been awarded a subcontract by Accenture Federal Services (AFS) to support cloud modernization services for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The time and materials (T&M) subcontract, part of the $189 million Accenture award, includes a one-year base period of performance with two one-year options as well as one six-month option.
Under the subcontract, Leidos will focus on four major tasks, including application rationalization, project initiation and planning, cloud modernization, and application sustainment and modernization. This support will help the CDC transition its systems into secured cloud solutions. It will also enable more effective public health data gathering, validation, analytics, forecasting and decision-making.
