The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) awarded REI Systems the Criminal Investigations, Imports and Systems Inspection Regulatory Compliance and Enforcement (SIRCE) contract valued at $400 million over five years. The single-award contract will support the FDA’s Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) in the development, modernization, and operations of its mission-critical systems that help protect consumers from risks such as dangerous, unacceptable quality, or mislabeled products, including foods, veterinary medicines, drugs, other medical products, and tobacco.

The FDA engaged REI Systems to address new legislative mandates, emerging health concerns, and leverage opportunities presented by evolving technologies through more efficient, reliable, and secure systems. These systems support over 150 posts and border stations domestically and 13 international offices and labs and on-site inspections at numerous manufacturer sites. REI Systems will implement innovative and Agile technology approaches that leverage DevSecOps and containerization, FEDRAMP cloud, strengthened security measures, and new analytic capabilities to support FDA’s essential mission of protecting public health and safety.

The FDA selected REI Systems based on the company’s success with complex application modernization throughout the federal government, unique Agile and DevSecOps capabilities, and a successful track record with previous technology transformations at FDA, including the Foreign Inspection Planning and Scheduling System.

REI Systems’ CEO Shyam Salona said, “We are very pleased to expand our relationship with the FDA. This contract award demonstrates FDA’s confidence in REI’s ability to provide continuity of essential operations and apply innovation to modernize ORA’s mission-critical systems, all with an Agile mindset.”

Megan Hicks, REI Systems Account Executive for the FDA, added, “We are honored to assist FDA in its mission to inspect and ensure only the safest products make it into the hands and households of consumers throughout the country.”
