1 min read

The National Institutes of Health Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC) has secured 801 Certification that enables it to provide assisted acquisition services for the Department of Defense.

The 801 designation permits DOD to use assisted acquisition services from NITAAC to facilitate procurement of property or services through its three IT governmentwide acquisition contracts without the need for a special waiver, NITAAC said in a March 23 news release.

With Assisted Acquisitions, the DoD will benefit from the capabilities and expertise of our contracting officers, as well as the efficiencies and economies associated with leveraging resources and requirements,” said Brian Goodger, acting director of NITAAC.

Since GWAC launch, NITAAC has supported DOD acquisitions valued at more than $8.7 billion. Some of the agencies that have turned to NITAAC to help with IT modernization, cybersecurity and analytics programs are the Defense Information Systems Agency, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army and the Department of Homeland Security.
