ACS Nabs Georgia Contract

ACS Nabs Georgia Contract

Affiliated Computer Services Inc. was selected as the prime contractor for the Georgia Health Partnership contract. The five-year contract with the Georgia Department of Community Health has two one-year extensions and is valued at about $351 million.

ACS is negotiating the final contract with the community health department. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agency that oversees state Medicaid programs, also must approve the deal.

Georgia is the first state to combine into a single program the administration of claims for the government-run health programs for state employees, Medicaid and uninsured children.

Harvey Braswell, president of ACS government services division, told Washington Technology earlier this month that the company competed for the contract against Electronic Data Systems Corp. of Plano, Texas, and WellPoint Health Networks Inc. of Thousand Oaks, Calif.
