“The CIO-SP3 Small Business ramp-on period is an important mechanism for encouraging competition on the GWAC, providing more opportunities for small and disadvantaged businesses, while also improving prices for our agency customers,” said Bridget Gauer, NITAAC Director. “NITAAC is pleased to offer our federal customers a more robust pool of SDVOSB contract holders, and look forward to additional announcements in the near future.”
NITAAC contract holders were selected from a diverse pool of industry leaders and innovators, vetted for their past performance, technical capabilities and expertise through a rigorous source selection process at the master contract level. This enables contracting officers to use simplified evaluations at the task and delivery order level, resulting in significant savings in time, money and resources.
“We are proud to have been selected to participate in the CIO-SP3 Small Business Contract,” said Brian Kafenbaum, Managing Partner at Phoenix Cybersecurity. “The work our team has done for DoD and civilian agencies can now easily extend into other agencies, such as the Department of Health and Human Services, to help defend, mitigate and respond to malicious cyber attacks.”

NITAAC (NIH Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center) is housed within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and is a full-service acquisition program that has been designated a federal Executive Agent, authorized by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to administer three Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) for information technology (IT) acquisitions. CIO-SP3, CIO-SP3 Small Business, and CIO-CS can be used by any Federal civilian or Department of Defense (DoD) agency to acquire information technology services, solutions, and commodities from pre-qualified vendors at lower than open market prices in less time than going the traditional full and open route. But we’re not just a GWAC program anymore, NITAAC has expanded its support including its new full-service Assisted Acquisition program, and is one of three OMB mandatory sources for laptop and desktop buys through our Government-wide Strategic Solutions (GSS) program.
