The work performed under the contract involves clinical data management, quality assurance and control, monitoring of clinical trials for safety and compliance and maintenance and enhancement of research databases and systems.
The contract includes one base year and four one-year options. Harris subcontractor Asclepius Solutions, Kensington, Md., which employs physicians, research professionals and information technology specialists, will help carry out the work.
In July, Harris was named a winner of one of the U.S. Veterans Affairs Department's Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology program contracts. The 15 contracts—with a combined value of $12 billion—support a range of IT and telecommunication services, including cybersecurity and program management, according to the VA.
