Hutch company theta. wins seat on $10B Defense Health Agency IDIQ
As part of prime contractor TechWerks’ team, we’re proud to announce Hutch company theta. won a seat on the latest iteration of the OMNIBUS IV Multiple Award Military Medical Research and Development Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) vehicle.
OMNIBUS IV has a 10-year ordering period, helping shape medical research and development in the Department of Defense (DoD) for years to come. Through the $10 billion IDIQ, awardees can provide a range of medical research and support services across the Defense sector.
Emmanuel Iroanya, theta.’s founder and managing member, is excited about the impact this work will have.
“There are such interesting computing problems in the health fields, specifically for the warfighter,” Emmanuel said. “The OMNIBUS IV IDIQ is an opportunity for us to further build out our R&D-as-a-Service offering at theta. to help Defense customers solve these kinds of problems. We’re so excited to be a part of this.”
What theta. and Team TechWerks bring to OMNIBUS IV
The OMNIBUS IV IDIQ is broken down into four market segments that future Task Orders (TOs) will fall under. These include Research & Development, Research & Development Support Services, Regulatory Processes, and Translational Science Support and Services.
TechWerks is one of the only Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOSBs) awarded a prime seat on OMNIBUS IV IDIQ. Their team is also one of just two that were awarded all four of the IDIQ’s market segments.
To support these market segments, Team TechWerks’ member companies all bring unique capabilities to the table.
theta.’s core contribution involves emerging technology. As a full-service digital and management firm that operates at the intersection of innovation and technology, theta. can offer cutting-edge technical services. This, paired with the company’s history of delivering innovation to Defense customers like the Army and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), made them a perfect fit for the OMNIBUS IV IDIQ.
“The emerging technology aspect of this IDIQ is what made us really want to be a part of this at theta.,” Emmanuel said. “There’s a lot of room for innovation, and we’re hoping to use the vehicle to bring some of our exciting Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing R&D efforts to DHA.”
