TULSA, Okla. – Cherokee Nation Technology Solutions has earned an $8.2 million contract extension to continue its work with the Defense Health Agency’s Public Health Division Armed Forces Health Surveillance Branch.

CNTS officials expect to fulfill the contract extension by spring 2018.

The extension, combined with the original $17.1 million contract issued in 2016, brings the total contract value of the project to $25.8 million.

“We are extremely honored to continue our partnership with DHA and to serve such a critical role in protecting the health of our nation’s service members,” John Hansen, CNTS operations general manager, said. “We will continue to deliver the exemplary customer service and dependability that DHA has come to expect from us as a partner.”

CNTS, a company within the consulting sector of Cherokee Nation Businesses, is providing scientific, professional, administrative and information technology support to AFHSB. The work includes epidemiological analysis; prevention, detection and response to infectious disease threats; bio surveillance; and maintenance, operation and enhancement of supporting surveillance information systems.
