The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration has awarded Consultec Inc. of Atlanta a contract worth $124 million over six years to provide Medicaid fiscal agent services to the state. The Florida system is scheduled to be in operation by July 1999.

Consultec is a leading health
care systems integrator, providing Medicaid management information systems to states. The company now processes Medicaid claims for the states of Iowa, Montana, New Mexico, Washington, West Virginia and Wyoming. Later this year, Consultec will implement a new Medicaid management information system and begin fiscal agent operations for Colorado.

Maryland has awarded TimeBridge Technologies, Lanham, Md., an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract to provide enhanced communications systems for public institutions statewide.

The contract has no maximum value, but TimeBridge officials expect it to generate $30 million to $50 million in revenue.

All Maryland state and local agencies, universities, school systems and nonprofit organizations have access to this purchasing vehicle, which offers products from Cisco Systems. The University of Maryland is one of the first to install new equipment purchased from the contract. Johns Hopkins University and Anne Arundel County are expected to use the contract as well.

TimeBridge, which was recently spun off from Sylvest Management Corp., also will provide service and maintenance support.

Fulton County, Ga., has selected Peritus Software Services Inc., Billerica, Mass., and Hitachi Data Systems, Santa Clara, Calif., to provide year 2000 services under a multimillion-dollar contract.

Peritus will provide its Enterprise Renovation Suite/2000 to perform inventory analysis, assessment and correction of the year 2000 software problem. HDS will provide project
office management and consulting services.
