These are the company's first contracts with HUD's Office of Multi-Family Housing. In addition to expanding McDonald Bradley's customer base at HUD, the new work expands the type of IT services the company delivers to HUD, adding software application development.
The contracts allow McDonald Bradley to take its relationship with HUD "to the next level ? through the increased complexity of what we have been tasked to build and deliver, and through the new, extended base of internal customers that will now rely on our expertise," said Kenneth Bartee, president of the company.
Under the largest new contract, McDonald Bradley will provide help desk services under a prime contract worth $3.3 million over four years. Under the second contract, the company will provide applications development and maintenance worth $800,000 over three years as a subcontractor on three separate systems?Multi-Family Claims, Multi-Family Insurance and Cash Control, Accounting and Reporting.
Under the help desk services contract, McDonald Bradley will provide traditional, phone-based help desk operations such as technical support and identification management, and hotline support addressing information from any of seven systems that support the process of managing multi-family housing. The systems range from tenant rental assistance certification to real estate portfolio management. Call tracking will be managed using McDonald Bradley's Web-based application, which the company said provides comprehensive reporting and metrics.
Under the subcontract, McDonald Bradley will use software application technologies and emerging standards to maintain and potentially upgrade existing mainframe systems.
