Aims to Improve Outreach in Support of CIO-SP3 and ECS contracts
Washington, DC, December 20, 2012: TCG’s Tchad Moore has been selected as co-chair of the Communications Community Action Group (CAG) for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Technology Assessment and Acquisition Center (NITAAC). NITAAC operates several government-wide acquisition contracts, including CIO-SP3 Unrestricted, CIO-SP3 Small Business (CIO-SP3 SB), and ECS3. TCG is a prime on CIO-SP3 SB.
The Communications CAG is one of four internal committees that provide input to NITAAC as it aims to support agencies’ IT acquisitions across the government. The others committees address Business Development, Contracts Administration, and Enhanced Competition. Each CAG is managed by NITAAC contract holders under the guidance of the NITAAC office.
The Communications CAG’s objective is to improve NITAAC’s education, communications, and outreach with Federal agencies, and to ensure open communications among NITAAC officials, customers, and contract holders. Along with fellow co-chair Joe Corcoran, Mr. Moore will work with NITAAC’s marketing team to promote NITAAC contracts to the Federal contracting community.
Mr. Moore joined TCG earlier this year. An accomplished business development executive with more than eight years of experience in Federal government IT, he also devotes a significant amount of his personal time in helping to raise money and providing support for The Children’s Inn at the NIH.
“One of TCG’s core values is ‘We invest ourselves in the project.’ By co-chairing this high-profile committee, Tchad has definitely shown his dedication to ensuring that NITAAC is well positioned to serve as many government IT buyers as possible,” said TCG president Dan Turner. “We are proud of his devotion to NITAAC and the NIH in general.”
CIO-SP3 SB represents the next generation of small business competition for Federal government contracts. With flexible contract types and the ability to award in modular increments and incorporate performance-based features, CIO-SP3 SB allows for streamlined planning, acquisition and deployment of large-scale IT program requirements while leveling the playing field with more meaningful small business competition. TCG was one of several small businesses awarded the coveted contract. CIO-SP3 SB enables any Federal civilian or DoD agency to obtain a broad range of mission critical IT services from TCG.

About NIH and NITAAC
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) (http://www.nih.gov), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the nation’s medical research agency—making important discoveries that improve health and save lives.
NIH is the largest source of funding for medical research in the world, creating hundreds of thousands of high-quality jobs by funding thousands of scientists in universities and research institutions in every state across America and around the globe. NIH is made up of 27 Institutes and Centers, each with a specific research agenda, often focusing on particular diseases or body systems. NIH leadership plays an active role in shaping the agency’s research planning, activities, and outlook.
NITAAC is the NIH’s Technology Assessment and Acquisition Center. Based on its experience and ability to leverage buying power, NITAAC was designated by the OMB as an executive agent authorized to administer government-wide acquisition contracts (GWACs). These contracts were specifically designed to streamline the procurement process for information technology (IT) products and services, pursuant to Section 5112e of the Clinger Cohen Act of 1996.
NITAAC GWACs are available to all federal civilian and DoD agencies. Prices have been pre-competed and pre-negotiated for below market pricing, so customers are assured of real value in a competitive IT market. NITAAC is the only executive agent with three GWACs for products, services and solutions, enabling NITAAC to deliver a broad scope of mission critical IT with confidence.
