DHS Taps Efiia Consulting for Cloud-Based Health Info Platform to Support COVID-19 Efforts - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Information technology consultancy firm Efiia Consulting has received a one-year contract from the Department of Homeland Security to provide a cloud-based platform for public health information to aid COVID-19 response, Federal Times reported Thursday.

According to a SAM notice posted Wednesday, DHS seeks to procure a collaborative platform and enlist subject-matter experts that will help inform, support and coordinate activities for medical and healthcare professionals across the public and private sectors as well as international allies.

In a separate document, DHS said that Efiia will help manage a Medical Public Health Information Sharing Environment to support the department's Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction Office.

DHS noted that the requirement comes as part of the department's need for a collaborative platform for assessing emerging COVID-19 risks, given that current methods are “not scalable to coordinate the increasingly complex response as the epidemic unfolds variably across the nation.“

Efiia Consulting is headquartered in College Park, Md., and offers cybersecurity, mobile computing, identity management and cloud support services to federal clients. The company holds a spot on the General Services Administration’s IT 70 Schedule.
