The single-award contract has a one-year base period of performance, five one-year options and a contract ceiling value of more than $15 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily in the National Capital Region.

The data warehouse was created to serve as the official repository of HRSA's data and to provide a single point of access to HRSA programmatic information, related health resources, demographic and statistical data for analyzing and reporting on HRSA activities.

It supports integrated reporting and mapping capabilities designed to make the data available to the broadest range of users, for the greatest range of purposes.
