Consultative and training support for CDC staff.

L-3 Communications : 28 February, 2008  (Application Story)
The centres for disease control and prevention gains L-3 Communication expertise in contract for the supply of training and planning for bio-terrorism.
L-3 Communications has signed a Blanket Purchase Agreement with the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to assist the agency with preparedness efforts for all-hazards, including acts of bio-terrorism and pandemic outbreaks. With a ceiling value of $215 million over five years, L-3's scope of work includes strategic and operational planning, training and exercise programs for CDC personnel, as well as institutional and organisational capacity and leadership building.

This new agreement expands the CDC relationship with L-3's MPRI business unit, which was first contracted in April 2006 to develop the CDC Influenza Pandemic Operational Plan. MPRI, a recognized industry leader in integrated solutions for simulations, training and operations, is now expanding its work to the all-hazards arena and will develop programs for the local, state and national level.

"We are delighted to expand our relationship with the CDC by supporting its vital work in pandemic and ongoing public health maintenance programs," said retired Gen Carl Vuono, president of L-3 Services Group. "Our decades of experience preparing government agencies and organizations to prevent and handle crises makes us uniquely suited for this effort."

Headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, MPRI provides comprehensive and integrated programs that address training, education, leader development, organizational design and implementation, simulations, democracy transition and emergency management across a broad spectrum of functional areas. Its customers include the Department of Defence, Department of Justice, Department of State and selected international government agencies.
