BT Federal will provide managed services to CDC, allowing them to control performance, cost and risk from the initial design of their systems through to the implementation and in-life management of the solution. By improving the efficiency and security of their operations, the CDC will be able to deal with public health concerns more responsively and efficiently.

Tony Wellen, President, BT Federal, said: “BT Federal is delighted to work with the GSA and the CDC as a trusted partner to support their public health global mission.
