Extensive experience and innovative methodologies combine to afford significant new work for company
RESTON, VA, May 13, 2015 – NCI, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCIT), a leading provider of information technology (IT) and professional services and solutions to U.S. Federal Government agencies, announced today that it was awarded a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract valued at $51.9 million to support the National Supplier Clearinghouse (NSC) for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The contract has a one-year base and four one-year option periods.
NCI’s solution applies advanced technology to adapt and improve the NSC program to aid in the prevention of fraud, waste and abuse, while enabling rapid enrollment of qualified durable equipment suppliers to support the needs of Medicare beneficiaries nationwide.
“We are very pleased to be chosen for this award as it represents significant new work and an important milestone for NCI,” said Brian J. Clark, NCI’s president. “Our wholly-owned subsidiary, AdvanceMed, has a long history of supporting CMS, giving us in-depth durable medical equipment policy expertise and an excellent track record performing fraud investigations. This, coupled with NCI’s technological capabilities and innovative methodologies, helped us bring a strong solution and unique capability set to the needs of this program.”
In April of this year, CMS also awarded NCI a Zone Program Integrity Contractor (ZPIC) contract for Zone 3 to help identify and reduce fraud.
