Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) has secured a posi­tion on a poten­tial five-year, $100M con­tract for tech­ni­cal sup­port to public health ini­tia­tives of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The follow-on award has a five-year base period and covers a range of pro­fes­sion­al ser­vices for CDC’s Center for Preparedness and Response, Leidos said Thursday.

The com­pa­ny said Thursday it plans to assist the CDC Center for Preparedness and Response in var­i­ous areas such as med­ical and sci­en­tif­ic con­sult­ing, public health man­age­ment and com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

“Leidos is priv­i­leged to con­tin­ue its impor­tant work with the CDC as they carry out their mis­sion to ensure our nation’s health secu­ri­ty against public health threats,” said Doreen Cohen, senior vice pres­i­dent of gov­ern­ment health and safety solu­tions at Leidos’ health group.

The com­pa­ny added it seeks to help the agency manage emer­gency response activ­i­ties through the follow-on con­tract.
