GDIT provides IT, computer assistance to DOD brain injury center

Contractor will coordinate information systems and technology services

General Dynamics Corp. has been awarded a five-year, $14.3 million task order to provide military health care management services to a joint center run by the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments.

The award under the Tricare Evaluation, Analysis and Management Support (TEAMS) contract calls for General Dynamics Information Technology to provide program management services to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center, according to the Sept. 23 company announcement.

GDIT will coordinate information systems and technology services, including phone lines and computer access for the center’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., and its Johnstown, Pa., and Charlottesville, Va., sites.

The work also includes program administration, conference planning, strategic communications and accounting support.

The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center is the primary traumatic brain injury component of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury, the announcement states.

The center serves thousands of patients through a comprehensive network of 17 physical sites throughout the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments. In addition to treating service members and veterans with all levels of traumatic brain injury, the center conducts an extensive research program and provides education about brain injuries to families, the public and clinical providers.

Through the TEAMS indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract, which was awarded to General Dynamics in July 2008, General Dynamics provides critical management support to the Defense Health Information Management System’s Electronic Health Record program.

The contractor also provides program and functional management services to the Defense Blood Standard System program office, which ensures the distribution of safe and effective blood products.

General Dynamics Corp., of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
