NIH AWARDS KPMG CONSULTING FOR OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE UNDER CIO-SP2 CONTRACT.

KPMG Consulting, Inc. (Nasdaq: KCIN), one of the world's largest consulting and business systems integration firms, has received an award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for Outstanding Performance under the Chief Information Officer Solutions and Partners II contract, known as CIO-SP2. In its first year as a prime contractor, KPMG Consulting was one of the top three revenue winners among the 48 companies competing under the contract.

Dr. Leamon Lee, Associate Director of Administration at NIH, presented the honor to KPMG Consulting at an awards ceremony hosted by the NIH Information Technology Acquisition & Assessment Center (NITAAC).

"KPMG Consulting has had extraordinary success with CIO-SP2 providing innovative e-Business solutions to defense and civilian agencies. While this is the company's first year as a prime contractor to the CIOSP contract community, KPMG Consulting is already a revenue leader and we look forward to working with the company for the remaining nine years of this contract," said Dr. Lee.

Under the CIO-SP2 contract, KPMG Consulting has received a total of eight task orders from the United States Army, the Department of State, the Department of Health and Human Services, and NIH, including:

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has selected KPMG Consulting as the business advisor and systems integrator to plan and design a Unified Financial Management System (UFMS). The mission of the UFMS is to provide HHS with a single, Web-based financial management system that enables uniform financial management across HHS agencies.

The NIH has engaged KPMG Consulting to continue with current work to develop and maintain the NIH data warehouse. The NIH data warehouse provides business intelligence and reporting for many of the NIH's administrative business functions such as human resources, finance, property management, and travel.

Other defense and civilian agencies have contracted with KPMG Consulting to provide solutions in the areas of chief information officer support; outsourcing; program management support; and integration services.

"The CIO-SP2 contract vehicle continues to enable KPMG Consulting to help federal agencies streamline their operations and better service their constituencies," said Rich Roberts, senior vice president, KPMG Consulting. "We look forward to leveraging our business systems integration experience to help agencies meet the challenges of an evolving technology environment in the years ahead."

In addition, Howard Ady, senior manager, KPMG Consulting, was presented the NITAAC Director's Award for his contributions to develop a successful marketing program for the CIO-SP2 contract.

"It's been my goal to get the message out that KPMG Consulting's CIO-SP2 team can help government CIOs transform their visions and plans into reality, through leadership and technology innovation," said Ady. "I'm honored to have received this award and look forward to another great year."

The CIO-SP2 contract allows federal agencies to purchase information technology products and services in nine key task areas, including CIO support; outsourcing; IT operations and maintenance; integration services; critical infrastructure protection and information assurance; digital government; enterprise resource planning; software development; and clinical support, research, and studies.
