U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Awards Unisys Contract to Provide Artificial Intelligence Solutions
Company will compete for orders valued at up to $49 million under contract designed to transform agency's operations and service delivery
RESTON, Va., October 8, 2019 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has selected the company to compete for task and delivery orders under the Intelligent Automation/Artificial Intelligence (IAAI) contract.
This five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract has a potential value of $49 million. The multiple award contract serves as a vehicle to transform HHS' operations and delivery of service to its constituents. The agency intends to use automation and other innovative solutions to reduce operational backlog and costs and streamline other functions, such as combatting fraud and using facial recognition to identify suspects of services theft.
This selection represents a potential expansion of Unisys' work for HHS and an opportunity for the company to help HHS advance its mission of enhancing and protecting the health and well-being of Americans by fostering advances in medicine, public health and social services.
"Unisys is excited to provide technologies to help HHS further its mission of modernizing and improving the delivery of vital services to the public," said Melissa Carson, group vice president for civilian agencies, Unisys Federal. "We have already integrated artificial intelligence, machine learning, advanced data analytics and other relevant technologies into our secure solution offerings, and are ready right now to apply the innovations that HHS needs to transform its operations and service model."
