Concurrent Technologies Corporation Awarded Contract to Support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with Readiness Efforts
Date:5/28/2009

JOHNSTOWN, Pa., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., President & Chief Executive Officer of Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), announced today that CTC has been awarded a contract with a potential value of $90,000 and a six-month period of performance.

"The CDC is taking the lead on making the IHR work, and CTC will assist with the effort," Mr. Gella explained. "The first step of any effective response strategy is to know where you currently stand, and this is why the CDC will endeavor to make a Web-based tool that will help member organizations report on eight stages of readiness."

With the IHR, Member States are required to asse
