ISDP - Information Systems Distribution & Procurement

The ISDP program acquires and delivers discounted software to NIH and HHS personnel. ISDP leverages large volume purchasing agreements to secure significantly discounted prices for its customers. The program performs market research, collects software product information, and negotiates directly with vendors to obtain the best possible price. This allows ISDP to present its NIH and HHS customers with the benefit of saving both money and time.

The ISDP program generates cost savings and enables customers to maximize their time and resources by:

  • Identifying the most effective software product pricing options
  • Conducting negotiations on behalf of the customers
  • Streamlining product accounts to manage costs and forecast demand

The ISDP program negotiates cost savings that are substantially lower than the GSA price for COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) products. Currently serving an estimated 96,000 users, ISDP supports all of the HHS Operating Divisions and Staff Divisions. The ISDP program operates as a full cost reimbursement program, and does not receive appropriated funds. An overhead fee is assigned for each software acquisition, and may be adjusted each fiscal year. The overhead fee covers personnel salaries, supplies, and the equipment necessary to run ISDP.
