A team headed by Oak Ridge-based Information International Associates (IIa) has won a contract to provide information technology support to Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The basic ordering agreement, with a potential term of five years, has a ceiling value of $24 million, according to information from ORNL.
Information International is a woman-owned small business, but the contract was awarded under a full and open competition. According to IIa’s press release, its team includes SAIC (Science Applications International Corp.), and other partners with special capabilities — Qbase, CADRE5 and EMC2 Corp.
Bonnie Carroll is the founder, owner and CEO of IIa.
In a statement, Carroll said, “ORNL wanted a strategic partner that can introduce innovation and bring best business practices to the delivery of IT services. We are a local information management and technology company with 25 years of U.S. Department of Energy experience. This has given us insights into the IT mission challenges for both ORNL and DOE.”
Franciel Azpurua-Linares is the project manager. She has managed IIa’s work for ORNL for more than 13 years, the company said.
Four months ago, IIa won a similarly sized contract from the Defense Department to operate a Homeland Defense and Security Information Analysis Center.
