The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) selected WorkingBuildings for a five-year, $25 million indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract for Facilities Planning and Real Estate Advisory Services for its nationwide facilities inventory and for its international facilities program, which includes both CDC-occupied facilities and facilities for host-nation governments.
CDC is recognized around the world as the nation’s premier health promotion, prevention, and preparedness agency and a global leader in public health. It remains at the forefront of public health efforts to prevent and control infectious and chronic diseases, injuries, workplace hazards, disabilities, and environmental health threats.
CDC is now focusing on becoming a more efficient and impactful agency by focusing on five strategic areas: supporting state and local health departments, improving global health, implementing measures to decrease leading causes of death, strengthening surveillance and epidemiology, and reforming health policies.
Earlier this year, National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched a multifaceted effort to ensure that processes for patient safety and quality of care at the hospital are of the highest standards. NIH hired WorkingBuildings to evaluate all of its facilities producing sterile or infused products for administration to research participants.
NIH is the primary federal agency conducting and supporting basic, clinical, and translational medical research, and is investigating the causes, treatments, and cures for both common and rare diseases.
Michael L. Weiss, President and CEO of WorkingBuildings, “CDC and NIH are very important to national and global health and safety. Our work with these entities reflects the outstanding level of service we provide and the fiscal prudence with which we ensure compliance and safety in health-related research and operations. These collaborations are a win for CDC, NIH, WorkingBuildings, and, most importantly, the community at large.”
